Books Beneath the Bridge: Greenlight Poetry Salon!
Featuring Willie Perdomo, Jenny Xie, and Franny Choi
Hosted by Angel Nafis
Greenlight is proud to participate in the seventh season of Books Beneath the Bridge, an outdoor literature series in Brooklyn Bridge Park, featuring six evenings curated by local independent bookstores. On Greenlight's featured Monday in July, it’s an evening of poetry in performance with a summer outdoor edition of our quarterly Greenlight Poetry Salon, hosted and curated by poet Angel Nafis! At this free outdoor event, poets gather to celebrate the power of poetry in a joyous evening underneath the glow of the Brooklyn Bridge. Tonight’s featured poets include Willie Perdomo, the award-winning author of four collections of poetry, most recently The Crazy Bunch; Jenny Xie, the author of Eye Level, recipient of the Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets and the Holmes National Poetry Prize; and Franny Choi, writer, editor, Kundiman Fellow, and the author of two poetry collections, most recently Soft Science.
