Thursday, February 13, 2014, 7:00 pm
A Valentine’s Eve event presented by
The Forum at St. Ann’s
In the Parish Hall, 157 Montague Street
Feast on words of love with Brooklyn poets and musicians gathering for Tell Me About Love. The Valentine event for all will feature an appearance by Brooklyn Poet Laureate Tina Chang and many other local poets of note.
Tell Me About Love is the first event under the banner of “The Forum at St. Ann’s,” a series of cultural programs designed to engage members of the larger community of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity in conversation about ideas, culture and civic life. St. Ann’s will invite authors, artists and performers whose work examines subjects that matter to modern people, such as immigration, climate change, gun violence, marriage equality, and income inequality. Broad themes, including love and loss, will also be addressed through a range of media.
Joining Tina Chang around the table to share their work at Tell Me About Love are a host of celebrated authors, including Ariana Reines, Annie Lanzillotto, Ronna Lebo, Boni Joi, Joon Oluchi Lee, and Billy Lopez. Members of the public are invited to bring short original or famous poems to read at the event.
Performances by musicians Ryan Hobler and Nick Balaban will round out the evening’s offerings. Light food and drink will be served.
A suggested donation of $10.00 is requested to support St. Ann’s and parish outreach programs that address hunger and poverty locally and globally.
