LA-Lit: Bruna Mori

LA-Lit interviews Bruna Mori
Sunday, May 21 at 2pm

The LA-Lit podcast (and this event) lasts a little over an hour and will be about 30 minutes of reading and about 30 minutes of questions / answers / and further questions.

Because we will be recording, please try to arrive on time or very quietly.

For more information, see:

Bruna Mori is the author of D?rive, a book of New York cityscape poems with sumi-ink paintings by Matthew Kinney, to be published this fall by Meritage Press. Tergiversation, her Ahadada Books chapbook, to be released this spring, is a series of homophonic and ‘sensorial’ translations, inspired by the work of the late Argentinean poet Alejandra Pizarnik.

In addition to her poetry and short prose, she writes creative nonfiction about art and architecture. Her most recent essay, for a forthcoming Semiotext[e] anthology, is on Isamu Noguchi’s internment designs for Poston, the camp where Noguchi was [voluntarily] incarcerated during World War 2.

Born in Japan and raised in the U.S., Mori presently lives in Los Angeles, where she edits at the Getty Research Institute, and teaches at Art Center College of Design and the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Her own BA and MFA degrees were completed at the University of California, San Diego, and Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.

Please note the time change from our normal schedule: doors open at 1:45 p.m. and the reading/recording will begin by 2:15 p.m.

LA-Lit interviews poets and writers in the Los Angeles area. Reflecting the shifting nature of Los Angeles as a place, this may mean writers that have lived in LA all their lives or writers who happen to be in LA for a few days. LA-Lit is a place for the literary culture of Los Angeles to develop and exhibit itself. Co-hosted and co-produced by Stephanie Rioux and Mathew Timmons, LA-Lit is sponsored by Superbunker and recorded at Betalevel.

Recordings are podcast every other Sunday at 5pm. You can subscribe to the podcast by visiting our website ( and dragging the subscribe link from the sidebar to your podcast folder in iTunes. You can also directly download past shows by visiting the writer?s page at LA-Lit.
