Poetry Was My Gateway Drug
Increasingly, writers are falling into discrete literary camps and are asked to define themselves  as novelists, poets, essayists  and often expected to stay true to form. Poet/Novelist Leigh Stein (author of the poetry collection Dispatch From the Future and the novel The Fallback Plan) and Novelist/Essayist Alexander Chee Author of Edinburgh and the forthcoming novel Queen of the Night) will discuss ever-present tension between poetry, fiction and non-fiction writing and how one often leads to another and whether or not they should.
In celebration of the Brooklyn Book Festival, Stein and Chee will read from their own work and discuss how they have moved flexibly between poetry, fiction and non-fiction writing within their own genre-spanning careers. Hosted by Lisa Lucas (Assistant Publisher, Guernica Magazine). Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mobile Libris.
