Joint Book Launch: The Self Fractured in Form
Stephen Elliott presents Sometimes I Think About It: Essays
Nuar Alsadir presents Fourth Person Singular
Wine reception to follow

Director, journalist, and author of The Adderall Diaries Stephen Elliott and poet, psychoanalyst, and author of More Shadow Than Bird Nuar Alsadir present their latest books in conversation at Greenlight. In a new essay collection that deftly moves from the self to the civic, Stephen Elliott gathers personal essays, reportage, and profiles written over fifteen years to tell a powerful story of outsiders and underdogs. Nuar Alsadir, whose poetry Claudia Rankine calls ‘lawless,’ ‘provocative,’ and ‘heartbreaking’ presents Fourth Person Singular, a new collection that explores the complexities, congruities, disturbances and beauty involved in self-representation in language. Elliott and Alsadir discuss their work in conversation, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the launch of the two books.
