4 days in France

Jérôme Reybaud’s remarkably accomplished feature debut is a sly and sophisticated take on gay romance in the 21st century. On a seemingly ordinary night in Paris, Pierre takes one last look his lover Paul’s sleeping body, then steals away into the early morning light. Where he’s headed, neither of them know. Pierre’s only guide is his Grindr app, which leads him on a series of encounters with an indelible cast of characters across the French countryside. Paul sets out after him, using his own phone to track Pierre’s movements in a strange and wonderful game of Grindr cat-and-mouse.

Guest Poet Robert Terashima

Unfortunately, the notion of excluding or 'rounding up' American citizens based upon their ethnicity or religion has again become a part of our public discourse. In his new collection of poetry, Issei and Other Poems, Robert Terashima eloquently opens up the story of his own family's history, a history that includes living in a country that, in 1907, had passed an Oriental Exclusion Proclamation that prevented any Asian person from becoming a citizen of the United States. The word the Japanese used to describe this generation was Issei. Had Terashima's family not already lived in Utah, they would have found themselves inside one of the barbed wire enclosed camps used to contain the Japanese population of the west coast. Readers today, in fact, might find it difficult to separate some of Terashima's poetry from political discussions that we find ourselves having now. Join us as we welcome poet Robert Terashima to The Printed Garden to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of his new collection of poetry, Issei and Other Poems. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.
