Join us as we launch two striking new books by Adeena Karasick, Ouvert Oeuvre: Openings and Aerotomania: The Book of Lumenations. Adeena will perform work from the books, followed by a signing and reception (refreshments provided.) 

Ouvert Oeuvre: Openings

Inscribing what Levinas might call “espace vital” (the space we can survive), Ouvert Oeuvre: Openings is an ecstatically wrought, never quite post-Covid celebration/trepidation of openings, written by Adeena Karasick and visualized by master book designer Warren Lehrer.

Aerotomania: The Book of Lumenations

"Punning with conceptual condensations until pleasures become fireworks, joyously singing the language dynamic, displaying heartfelt learning, sexy switch-ups and flights of insight, this work by Adeena Karasick is a gasp-worthy balance of poetic eros, theoretical intelligence, and luminous suspicion..." —Rachel Blau DuPlessis
