Patient. Los Angeles.

  • Here and Now 5471 Huntington Dr N Los Angeles, CA, 90032 United States (map)

Bettina Judd's debut collection, patient., winner of the 2013 Hudson Book Prize, comes to Los Angeles.

In patient., a researcher lives with the ghosts of enslaved women after they visit her hospital bed. To appease them, she traces the stories of Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy, three of the women who were subject to experiments by the father of American gynecology and finds that she is entangled in a history of medical subjection and display.

Hosted by Kima Jones, poets Ashaki M. Jackson and Bettina Judd will be reading embodied and haunting poems at Here & Now as a part of the Los Angeles stop on the Official Patient. Poems Book Tour.
