Colin Channer, C.J. Farley – Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn Law School Student Lounge, Brooklyn, NY

With: and

“Lost and Found.” Family, culture, violence, and loss infuse a collection of poems by Colin Channer (Providential), Jennifer Pashley’s novel The Scamp, and a short-story collection by Russell Banks (A Permanent Member of the Family). Hitched to their past, characters struggle to find optimistic possibilities, or follow a trail of blood and self-destruction. Short readings and discussion. Moderated by Christopher John Farley (Game World, Wall Street Journal).
