    Join artist Amy Ching-Yan Lam and guests Andrea Actis, Ido Radon, and Christian Vistan for the launch of Lam’s new poetry book, Baby Book

    Direct and humorous, Baby Book stacks story upon story to explore how beliefs are first formed. From a discount bus tour family vacation to a cosmogony based on cheese, these poems accumulate around principles of contingency and revelation. Lam describes the vivid tactility of growth and death–how everything is constantly, painfully remade–offering a vision against the stuck narratives of property and inheritance. Power is located in the senses, in wind: multiple and restless.

    This launch is presented by READ Books and the Richmond Art Gallery on the occasion of Amy Ching-Yan Lam’s exhibition a small but comfy house and maybe a dog at the Richmond Art Gallery on view April 22 – June 11, 2023.

    Free drop-in. Everyone welcome to attend.
