Peck's Book/Plate featuring Saeed Jones
Peck's Specialty Food will co-host a new author series: Book/Plate, offering a unique dinner paired with an author and a copy of their newest book for a single ticket price.
Join Saeed Jones on September 18th at 7pm for a family-style dinner crafted by the chefs at Peck's to celebrate the publication of Prelude to Bruise, Jones' newest poetry collectionavailable now from Greenlight Bookstore. "Part of Jones' skill is the ability to take stereotypesabout growing up in the South, about growing up black in the South, about being gayand nimbly overturn them to shake out their contents." (Brooklyn Magazine) "These are poems that look at hard, ugly experiences and wring a mythic sort of beauty from them." (NPR)
Following dinner, Jones will give a reading and sign complimentary books for diners.
Seats are limited and available by reservation only.
So please join us for drinks, dinner and conversation with the charming Mr. Jones (Twitter handle: @theferocity).
