Jessica Greenbaum presents Spilled and Gone
With Jason Koo and D. Nurkse
Refreshments reception to follow
Greenlight neighbor Jessica Greenbaum joins fellow Brooklyn poets Jason Koo and D. Nurkse for a celebration of her new book Spilled and Gone. Fellow poet Grace Schulman writes "In Spilled and Gone... Greenbaum envisions a Brooklyn that is real and a Brooklyn that is everywhere... Whatever she entertains—a storm-struck tree, an outdoor concert, her immigrant grandparents, a food truck in Grand Army Plaza—her subject is enlivened by keen observation, a fresh mind, and a vivid sense of place that makes me want to be there, with her, in her world." The event is introduced and hosted by Jason Koo, author of several books including More Than Mere Light and founder and executive director of Brooklyn Poets. Greenbaum shares the mic and discussion with D. Nurkse, long-honored author of eleven collections of poetry including Love in the Last Days and A Night in Brooklyn.
