From Collective Isolation: James Cagney
While the COVID-19 pandemic has put BAMPFA’s long-running poetry reading series on hold, we’re presenting online readings from some of our favorite poets. We've invited them to read recent work that speaks to our current moment of isolation.
James Cagney reads “The Ending of Things” and “Compliance.”
Oakland native James Cagney is the author of Black Steel Magnolias in the Hour of Chaos Theory, winner of the PEN Oakland 2019 Josephine Miles award. His poems have appeared in Poetry Daily, The Maynard, and Civil Liberties United, among others.
