Over eight rain-or-shine pop-up shows at Lincoln Center’s slyly clandestine Speakeasy, located at Jaffe Drive, Lincoln Center’s first ever Poet-in-Residence Mahogany L. Browne will present S3 Underground: Seen. Sound. Scribe., a continuation of her ongoing on-site residency.  Underground features some of the world’s most acclaimed and most promising authors reading their works at this bar lounge of thought-provoking and politically driven spoken word poetry and wordplay, supported by a live DJ. Brooklyn’s own Mahogany L. Browne is a prolific author and avid advocate for public art. Her inaugural collection, Unlikely and Other Sorts, was published in 2006. In the years since, she has written works of fiction, stage plays and critical essays to go along with a half dozen poetry collections and another six anthologies as editor. Browne’s recently released book-length poem, I Remember Death by Its Proximity to What I Love, explores the binding and boundaries of incarceration.
