New York Public Library Book Group – Discussion of The Low Passions / Staten Island, NY

New York Public Library Book Group – Discussion of THE LOW PASSIONS by ANDERS CARLSON-WEE & THE CRAZY BUNCH by WILLIE PERDOMO.


208 Bay Street, STATEN ISLAND, NY

Join us at the Everything Goes Book Cafe for a poetry book discussion about two newly published books. THE CRAZY BUNCH by Wille Perdomo is “a new collection that chronicles a weekend in the life of a group of friends coming of age in East Harlem at the dawn of the hip-hop era”, while THE LOW PASSIONS by Anders Carlson-Wee “traces the fringes of the American experiment through the eyes of a young drifter...the narrator of these viscerally compelling poems hops freight trains, hitchhikes, dumpster dives, and sleeps in the homes of total strangers, scavenging forgotten and hardscrabble places for tangible forms of faith.”

Stop by the West New Brighton library for a copy of the books or printed copies of the poems. Or feel free to bring your own copy!
