The Brother In Elysium Books presents an evening and concert performance with the composer and improviser Jerome Ellis. Please join us for an intimate set of hymns and odes he’s written and inherited over the years. These are songs of praise—in praise of poetry, in praise of blackness, in praise of the earth, in praise of liberation and peace.
The performance will begin at 7pm. Admission to the concert is $10 (cash only at the door please) and includes a letterpress printed broadside of the program notes written by Jerome for this performance. The printed piece measures 13 x 19", and is printed from hand set type. Program notes can be read here.
A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to UNICEF.
Please join us Thursday, October 11th at 7:30pm for our first reading in the bookstore with Joshua Beckman and Cedar Sigo. Copies of their books of poems will be available for sale. In the low-key style of these two poets, no bios here. New works will be read. Come listen.
