Poetic Consumption: A Date Night with Gertrude Stein marries poetry, food, and community, using the legendary American writer Gertrude Stein as inspiration. Stein’s seminal book of lyrical prose, Tender Buttons, serves as the framework for a three-course poetic meal crafted by Chef Evan Hanczor, from Brooklyn, NY’s Egg.
Hanczor’s meal, crafted in accordance with the diction, syntax, and rhythm of the text’s “Food” section, relies on items listed throughout the work for its cornerstone ingredients. Little Hait’s Little Farm House provides the backdrop to a beautifully eccentric evening of word and food.
Hosted by Amanda Finuccio and Lauren Monzon of EXILE Books.

About Little Farm House
Built in the 1920’s, located on a bend of the Little River section of the Miami River on the edge of Little Haiti, is an eclectic one-acre oasis consisting of a 1,200 square foot farm house, two story boathouse and six colorful cottages featuring rustic furnishings. The Little Farm House also runs as a sanctuary for animals that have been rescued from the local shelter or found abandoned. To date, the Little Farm House is called home to dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, a goat and one very curious and mischievous little pig. All of the Little Farm House proceeds go toward the upkeep and cost of maintaining an animal sanctuary. For bookings please contact Gabriella von Rosen at email@example.com.
