Madelaine Caritas Longman launches her first book of poetry, The Danger Model (McGill-Queen’s University Press 2019). The book confronts questions about art, illness, identity, and the paradox of authenticity, looking at what it means to be a “self” in contexts as diverse as the medical system, performance art, queer adolescence, and Talmudic debate. Featuring a special guest reading by Tess Liem, whose debut collection Obits was nominated for the Lambda Literary Award and recently won the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award for 2019.
