Director, journalist, and author of The Adderall Diaries Stephen Elliott and poet, psychoanalyst, and author of More Shadow Than Bird Nuar Alsadir present their latest books in conversation at Greenlight. In a new essay collection that deftly moves from the self to the civic, Stephen Elliott gathers personal essays, reportage, and profiles written over fifteen years to tell a powerful story of outsiders and underdogs. Nuar Alsadir, whose poetry Claudia Rankine calls ‘lawless,’ ‘provocative,’ and ‘heartbreaking’ presents Fourth Person Singular, a new collection that explores the complexities, congruities, disturbances and beauty involved in self-representation in language. Elliott and Alsadir discuss their work in conversation, followed by a signing and Q&A.
