BK: Nicole Gulotta presents EAT THIS POEM with Erin Boyle

    06/01/2017 - 7:00pm

    This event will take place in our Brooklyn store.

    Food and poetry are two of life’s essential ingredients. In the same way that salt seasons ingredients to bring out their flavors, poetry seasons our lives; when celebrated together, our everyday moments and meals are richer and more meaningful.The twenty-five inspiring poems in this book—from such poets as Marge Piercy, Louise Glück, Mark Strand, Mary Oliver, Billy Collins, Jane Glück, Jane Hirshfield—are accompanied by seventy-five recipes that bring the richness of words to life in our kitchen, on our plate, and through our palate. Eat This Poem opens us up to fresh ways of accessing poetry and lends new meaning to the foods we cook.

    Nicole Gulotta launched the blog “Eat This Poem” in 2012 as a way to fuse two of her passions: food and writing. She has an MFA in creative writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and studied literature and art history at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2011, she founded The Giving Table, a website that empowers everyone to change the food system. She’s a regular contributor for Life & Thyme magazine, and her work has been featured in Positive Writer, Christian Science Monitor, and numerous guest posts. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, son, and French bulldog.

    Erin Boyle is the writer and photographer behind the blog, Reading My Tea Leaves. Her first book, Simple Matters, is a nod to the growing consensus that living simply and purposefully is more sustainable not only for the environment, but for our own happiness and well-being, too. Erin embraces the notion that “living small” is beneficial and accessible to us all—whether we’re renting a tiny apartment or purchasing a three-story house.  Erin lives in New York City with her husband, James, and her two children.
