Celebrated poet and essayist Eileen Myles comes to BAM on March 1 as part of our Eat, Drink & Be Literary series. Illustrator Nathan Gelgud revisits Myles' participation in the 1992 presidential election, when she ran as an "openly female" write-in candidate.
Note: Most of the dialogue attributed to Myles comes from her original campaign letters, but some of it is made up.
- Interview with Myles by Morgan Parker in The Literary Review
- Article and interview with Myles by Joanna Rothkopf at Jezebel
- Maureen Dowd's 1991 New York Times article about the Bush speech
- "An American Poem" at the Poetry Foundation
