McGillicuddy Humanities Center Fellow Bria Lamonica will be presenting an original collection of poems, “The Art of Breathing,” on December 8 at 5:30 p.m. ET. Free and open to the public. Join the Zoom reading here.
Lamonica is a fourth-year English major with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in psychology. As part of her MHC fellowship, she created this experimental collection of poetry, which deals with issues of oppression and the female body. The reading will mark the completion of her fellowship, as well as a celebration and appreciation for feminism and the ongoing work women are doing for equality. She selected four influential women from her academic and personal life to act as readers: Kathleen Ellis, lecturer in English; UMaine students Sarah Penney and Autumn Rogers; and Linette Hice, her mother.
