    Join Inlandia Institute at Riverside Art Museum on Saturday, November 13, from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM, as we celebrate the launch of Hillary Gravendyk Poetry Prize-winner Remyth: A Postmodernist Ritual by Adam D. Martinez.

    Remyth is a baptism and an exorcism. It's Hip-Hop and Punk. It's high art meeting low art at the church altar. It's a Works Cited page meeting with a ruthless remix culture unwilling to claim ownership and more than willing to take what it needs to make meaning.

    Remyth is a concept that is indebted to remix culture and self-preservation. The spirit of this book is a ritual in form and content, aiming to make sense of a life filled with social media, distrust, anxiety, depression, pop culture, and longing for the feelings that relics of the past can create. This collection of poetry joins various poetic styles (such as prose, rhizomes, futurist, and free verse) to highlight the psychic and corporeal effects of being a multicultural 20-something navigating identity post-heartbreak and in the nascent stages of coming to terms with childhood traumas.

    The poetry reading and book launch are free and open to the public, but registration is required. To RSVP visit
