Greenlight is honored to partner with one of Brooklyn’s premier literary magazines, A Public Space, to host two authors featured in the pages of APS presenting their own new nonfiction works. Amy Leach is a widely published essayist and the winner of the Rona Jaffe Award and Whiting Writers' Award. Her debut work Things That Are is a series of essays that progress from the tiniest Earth dwellers to far-flung celestial bodies—considering everything from the similarity of gods to donkeys, to the connection of exploding stars and exploding sea cucumbers—to rekindle our communion with the wild world. Brooklyn-based author Robert Sullivan is the author of Rats, among other nonfiction works, and is a contributing editor at Vogue. In his new book My American Revolution, Sullivan delves into the history of the American Revolutionary War that took place in the mid-Atlantic states, talking with historians and re-enactors as well as undertaking his own, sometimes ill-advised, adventures along the paths of American independence. The authors will be introduced by our Fort Greene neighbor Brigid Hughes, the founder and editor-in-chief of A Public Space. The event will be followed by a wine reception.
