Join us for a reading of an excerpt from Bridget Brewer’s Relic, an “illuminated-manuscript-performance novel” that explores traumatic memory, queer theater, and the history of Catholic relic worship. Employing a range of genres, research, histories, and forms, Relic engages in poetics to embrace the unknown.
