Created by Greenlight’s own Angel Nafis, Greenlight’s quarterly Poetry Salon welcomes locally and nationally celebrated poets. Detroit-based poet Tarfia Faizullah is the author of Seam, winner of the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry First Book Award. Her awards and fellowship include a Fulbright, a Kundiman fellowship, and a Bread Loaf scholarship. Jamaal May, also from Detroit, taught poetry in public schools and worked as a freelance audio engineer and touring performer; his first book, Hum, received the Beatrice Hawley Award and an NAACP Image Award nomination. Tarfia and Jamaal co-direct the Organic Weapon Arts Chapbook and Video Series. Thomas Fucaloro is a founding editor of Great Weather for Media and editor for Staten Island's new literary magazine NYSAI; his latest book is It Starts From the Belly and Blooms. Brooklyn author Bianca Stone is the founder and editor of Monk Books, and collaborated with Anne Carson on the collection Antigonick; her new book is Someone Else’s Wedding Vows. Join us at Greenlight for a joyful and energetic evening of poetry and performance, accompanied by a wine reception.
