Valerie June‘s voice has variously been described as versatile, radiant, elastic, and spirited. Whatever the adjective, it’s unanimous that she’s in possession of a singular sound. Her latest album The Moon and Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers was released in March to rave reviews. Now, she turns her lyrical prowess to poetry. Her debut collection is imbued with a kind of magic that only June can deliver. Join her and Well Read Black Girl‘s Glory Edim for a conversation and reading from Maps for the Modern World.
