Planta Baja Press launches Prajna Desai's why not again a love story, also featuring J.A. Gibson

Join us for the launch of why not again a love story by Prajna Desai published by Planta Baja Press. The chapbook-length poem is a meditation on the molecular and narrative forces of language/text as the locus for human engagement -- sexual, intellectual, political.

Prajna will do a reading of some excerpts from the work, followed by a conversation with the writer J.A. Gibson.

Prajna Desai is an art historian and writer of fiction. Her scholarship deals with visual politics, print culture, and built form at the intersection of nineteenth and twentieth century intellectual histories and narratives of science. She lives across languages and resides in Brooklyn. Bombay is home.

J.A. Gibson is a Canadian-born writer & teacher who lives in Brooklyn. Recently her work has been published in the Dublin Review and in Katarina Burin’s artist book Petra Andrejova-Molnár. She holds a PhD in art history from Yale.
