Sawako Nakayasu has written that Julia Bloch's The Sacramento of Desire traces "a new, feminist, queer machinery that pervades, interrupts, and incurs high charges over a necessary tenderness." Bloch will give a short craft talk on the role of temporality in this book of poetry, followed by a short reading from her new collection. 


Dr. Julia Bloch is the author of three books of poetry, including Letters to Kelly Clarkson, a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award, and The Sacramento of Desire, published in early 2020. She is writing a scholarly book about race, gender, and lyric theory, is a Pew Fellow in the Arts, and works and teaches at the University of Pennsylvania, where she is director of the Creative Writing Program.
