Anand Giridharadas presents The Persuaders: At the Front Lines of the Fight for Hearts, Minds, and Democracy
In conversation with Jodi Kantor
Tickets: $32 (includes signed book)

The lifeblood of any free society is persuasion: changing other people’s minds in order to change things. But America is suffering a crisis of faith in persuasion that is putting its democracy and the planet itself at risk. With his new book, The Persuaders, former New York Times columnist and foreign correspondent Anand Giridharadas offers an insider account of activists, politicians, educators, and everyday citizens working to change minds, bridge divisions, and fight for democracy—from disinformation fighters to a leader of Black Lives Matter to Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and more. Giridharadas will be joined at The Bell House by author and New York Times correspondent Jodi Kantor for a reading and discussion of democracy, persuasion, and a way towards healing a fracturing country.

Each book bundle ticket includes a signed copy of The Persuaders, to be picked up at the event. Event ages 21+

Have you ever had a feeling about something, that you just couldn’t explain? Something that was telling you in your gut what decision to make, which direction to go in, or what to believe?

Book Launch: Fatimah Asghar presents 
When We Were Sisters
In conversation with Angel Nafis, José Olivarez, and Jess Snow
Tickets: $5 GA; $30 Book Bundle (includes seat and book)

Greenlight is honored to partner with St. Joseph's University in welcoming Fatimah Asghar—the polymathic, boundary-shifting poet, filmmaker, educator, and performer—and her much-anticipated debut novel. Wrenching, poetic, and unguardedly tender, When We Were Sisters explores the interlocking ties between three Muslim American sisters who, after their parents die, are left to raise one another in a country whose systems were not designed for them. In crisp and evocative vignettes, Asghar unspools this unique coming-of-age tale that delves into, in her own words, “the failures and shortcomings of language... kids that are overlooked, and all the definitions of themselves they are able to make from that overlooking." Asghar will grace the St. Joseph's University stage along with fellow acclaimed poets Angel Nafis, José Olivarez, and Jess Snow for an evening of reading, conversation, and celebration.

Each book bundle ticket includes a signed copy of When We Were Sisters, to be picked up at the event.
Mask-wearing is required to attend this event.

Eileen Myles presents Pathetic Literature
Featuring Fred Moten, Carmen Boullosa, Nicole Eisenman, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Marcella Durand, and Will Farris
Tickets: $38.50 (includes seat and book)

"Literature is pathetic." So claims Eileen Myles in their new edited anthology Pathetic Literature, an exuberant collection of pieces ranging from poetry to drama to prose to something in between, all of which explore those so-called “pathetic” or sensitive feelings around which lives are built and revolutions are incited. Utterly unique, this collection is composed of pieces from luminaries like Franz Kafka, Samuel Delany, and Gwendolyn Brooks to up-and-coming unpublished writers that examine pathos and feeling, giving a well-timed rehab to the word “pathetic." Greenlight and our friends at St. Joseph's University are thrilled to welcome Eileen Myles, one of America’s most celebrated poets and a cult(ural) icon, along with an esteemed cast of fellow authors and contributors, for an evening celebrating the publication of Pathetic Literature.

Each book bundle ticket includes a copy of Pathetic Literature, to be picked up at the event. Mask-wearing is required to attend this event.
