Launch reading for Laura Buccieri's ON BEING MISTAKEN (Pank)

On On Being Mistaken:

LAURA BUCCIERI observes, confronts, and explores queer womanhood in her collection On Being Mistaken. Buccieri writes, “i am the only thing i will carry,” but she manages to not only carry us through the implications of a society that “others,” but she also drops us into language that resists and jabs at that exact act of “othering.” This is an exciting, experimental, and rhythmic voice that creates a space in which we can explore how we are labeled and how we ourselves label. Buccieri doesn’t beg for answers but rather urges us to expand our language, assumptions, and ideologies. Proceeds from on being mistaken will benefit the Audre Lorde Project and The Lower East Side Girls Club.
