Gather at the Integer: Diane Exavier presents The Math of Saint Felix
Hosted by Angel Nafis
Featuring Shayla Lawz and Carlos Sirah

In a longstanding tradition of launching the debuts of exceptional new voices in poetry, Greenlight welcomes writer, theatermaker, educator, and Brooklyn local Diane Exavier to launch her first collection, The Math of Saint Felix. Her book-length lyric is an attempt to do the math of a woman, a family, a country, and a diaspora, plotting how the sum of one life reveals permutations of many— daughters, sisters, lovers—and the uncountable cost of a single death. With the heart-stilling gravity of a weary prophet, Exavier—hailed by Legacy Russell (Glitch Feminism) as “a rising star in the next generation of Black poetics”—performs the work of generations. Community and collaboration are at the center of this literary event at Greenlight Bookstore, hosted by the incomparable Angel Nafis and featuring Shayla Lawz, author of the new poetry collection, speculation, n., and Carlos Sirah, author of The High Alive: An Epic Hoodoo Diptych (The 3rd Thing, 2020). Nafis, Lawz, Sirah, and Exavier hold space not only for each other’s language, but for the characters living between the lines in this evening of offerings in poetry and performance.
