The Nightboat Books team is pleased to announce that for the first time, we will be tabling at the New York Art Bookfair @ Moma PS1. We’re tabling all four days from Sept 21-23 as well as hosting authors signings at our table & a reading:
Nightboat Books reading with Jen Bervin, Rosamond S King, Aldrin Valdez, Asiya Wadud & Paolo Javier. Rosamond S King won the 2018 LAMBDA award for her collection Rock | Salt | Stone (2017). Jen Bervin, author of Silk Poems (2017), is an interdisciplinary artist and poet whose research-driven works weave together art, writing, science and life in a complex yet elegant way. Aldrin Valdez is the author of the exciting debut collection ESL or You Weren’t Here (2018) that presents a portrait of the poet as witness to, & healer of, their child self. Asiya Wadud’s debut Crosslight for Youngbird (2018) is an urgent and vital collection of poems that mixes ekphrasis with reportage to draw a new narrative of our present-day migration crises. Paolo Javier served as the Queens Borough Poet Laureate from 2010-12014 & is the author of Court of the Dragon (2015). Nightboat Books is a nonprofit organization that seeks to develop audiences for writers whose work resists convention and transcends boundaries, by publishing books rich with poignancy, intelligence and risk.
