Andrea Gibson: Lord of the Butterflies Reading

Indigo is excited to host poet Andrea Gibson for a reading and signing as a part of their national tour for their new book, Lord of the Butterflies!

In a fierce oscillation between activism and love, Andrea Gibson’s newest literary triumph, Lord of the Butterflies, is a masterful showcase from the renowned poet whose writing and performances have captured the hearts of millions. An artful and nuanced look at gender, romance, loss, and family, this is also a book of protest. While rioting against gun violence, homophobia, and white supremacy, Gibson celebrates gender expansion, queer love, and the will to stay alive. Each emotion in Lord of the Butterflies is deft and delicate, resting within imagery heavy enough to sink the heart, while giving the body wings to soar.

Winner of the first ever Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2008, Andrea Gibson remains one of the most captivating performers in the spoken word poetry scene today. Gibson has authored four full-length collections of poems, an illustrated book of their most memorable quotes, Take Me With You, and has released seven albums.
