Inpatient Press and Printed Matter St Marks present the launch of Para Ana, an epistolary chapbook by Katie Ebbitt dedicated to Brazilian poet Ana Cristina Cesar featuring readers Wo Chan and LA Warman.
Comprised of standalone poems and fragmentary missives, Para Ana is a fugue on “sending”, a letter that is read by everyone except the ‘dear'est.
