Nestled squarely between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens at 149 7th St. in Brooklyn, The Bell House is a performance space and lounge crafted out of a 1920’s printing factory.

Hanif Abdurraqib presents There’s Always This Year: On Basketball and Ascension

Tickets $35 (book included)

Greenlight is thrilled to partner with The Bell House to host the incomparable Hanif Abdurraquib to present his new book. There’s Always This Year is a classic Abdurraqib triumph, brimming with joy, pain, solidarity, comfort, outrage, and hope. It’s about basketball in the way They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us is about music and A Little Devil in America is about history—no matter the subject, Abdurraqib’s exquisite writing is always poetry, always profound, and always a clarion call to radically reimagine how we think about our culture, our country, and ourselves.
