Description

PSNY's quarterly Salon Series aims to create a sanctuary where writers and literature lovers can meet, mingle, think, feel, indulge, discuss, listen, learn, and live life to its fullest!

Each event includes a featured reading and Q&A with an esteemed poet celebrating a new book, a handful of short poetry readings by PSNY members, and a complimentary open bar throughout. Doors open at 7pm. Readings begin after 8. Cocktail attire is encouraged but not required.

This event's featured reader is Jericho Brown, whose latest poetry collection, The Tradition, was release this summer by Copper Canyon Press. Copies of The Tradition can be purchased on site at the event thanks to Word Bookstores.

Jericho Brown is the recipient of a Whiting Writers’ Award and fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Brown’s first book, Please (2008), won the American Book Award. His second book, The New Testament (2014), won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award and was named one of the best of the year by Library Journal, Coldfront, and the Academy of American Poets. He is also the author of the collection The Tradition (2019), which was long listed for the 2019 National Book Award. His poems have appeared in Buzzfeed, The Nation, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The New Republic, Time, and The Pushcart Prize Anthology, and several volumes of The Best American Poetry anthologies. He is an associate professor and the director of the Creative Writing Program at Emory University in Atlanta.

A special thank you to our beer, wine, and liquor sponsors, who have made our open bar policy possible! Thank you, Lost Poet by Winc, Brooklyn Brewery, New York Distilling Company, Absinthia, Pomp & Whimsy, and Women's Cocktail Collective.
