An Evening with Global City Review
With contributors Linsey Abrams, Frederic Tuten, and Michelle Yasmine Valladares
Global City Review describes itself as "a literary metropolis of the imagination," reflecting the global culture of New York City in stories, poems, memoirs, interviews and essays organized around a broad theme. Tonight three of their contributing authors take the stage to read from new work. Linsey Abrams directs the MFA Program in Creative Writing at the City College of New York; she is the author of the novels Our History in New York and Charting by the Stars and, of which The New York Times has said: "Abrams has her own style-a mixture of introspection, common sense, daydreaming and recollection-and controls it beautifully." Frederic Tuten received a Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Writing and in 2001 was given the Award for Distinguished Writing from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; he is the author of five novels, including most recently, The Green Hour, and currently teaches graduate fiction workshops at The City College and offers classes on experimental writing at The New School University. Michelle Yasmine Valladares is the poetry editor of Global City Review and teaches creative writing and poetry as Lecturer in English at the City College of New York. Her collection of poems, Nortada, The North Wind (published by Global City Books), has been described by the poet Jean Valentine as "Simplicity and abstraction, experience and beauty, speak wholeheartedly to one another, and to us." Join us for an evening of New York literature that takes on the world.
