Join author Lucas Crawford with Triny Finlay to celebrate the publication of The High Line Scavenger Hunt with an evening of scintillating poetry.
The High Line Scavenger Hunt is a poetic search for the ruins and relics of what was New York's high line neighbourhood and is now the High Line park. These poems lean into this fraught space that straddles violent gentrification and erased queer histories, braiding together architecture, autobiography, and transgender history into a remarkable collection. It is essential reading for any urban misfit, intellectual outlier, and every queered heart.
Lucas Crawford is a professor of English Literature at the University of New Brunswick. He is the author of The High Line Scavenger Hunt, Sideshow Concessions, and Transgender Architectonics--a book that helped to spark ongoing interest in the High Line park, its designers, and its histories.
Triny Finlay's latest poetry collection, You don't want what I've got, is an exploration of mental illnesses, their treatments, and stigma. She is the author of Splitting Off, and Histories Haunt Us, and her work has appeared in numerous anthologies and literary magazines.
We look forward to seeing you for this fantastic reading!
Our Book of the Month for November is Killing Commendatore, by Haruki Murakami. A newly-singly portrait painter in his 30s, escaping the wreckage of his marriage, is hire to help out a famous artist. But even at the artist's remote house, the mysteries pile up - a bell in the woods, a painting under wraps in the attic. This book is a voyage of discovery, personal and historic, replete with quiet profundity.
