Come to a book party on Nov 5! I’m so pleased that with the help of Underwater New York we managed to book the Melville Gallery at the South Street Seaport Museum. A perfect place to wash the damp, drizzly Novembers from our souls…
We’ll be celebrating Oceanic New York, which began as a symposium at St. John’s in the fall of 2013 and has recently appeared as an open-source book. (Follow the link for a free ebook download or order a reasonably priced paperback copy — and support Punctum Books and open-access publishing if you can!)
The book features the brilliant writings and artwork of eighteen of my favorite oceanic people. The contributors walk the shores of many waters, from the Pacific Ocean to the Irish Sea, and speak of many cities. Not all eighteen can make it to our insular city of the Manhattoes, but we’ll be together in spirit.
The party will be held in the Melville Gallery at the South Street Seaport Museum, 213 Water Street, Manhattan, from 7 – 9 pm. The event is supported by St. John’s English department and by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Our co-hosts are Underwater New York, a wonderfully salty online literary magazine.
Please come to celebrate with us!
Here is a link to the ONY Party Flyer for the event, which you should also see around St. John’s in the coming weeks.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or just to let me know that you’re coming!
