Poetry Reading, The Paper Girl

Sunday, November 12 - 6:30 PM


Jessica Brophy will read from her debut chapbook, The Paper Girl (2016, Finishing Line Press). The Paper Girl details the coming of age story of a girl growing up in a Baptist fundamentalist home in New Jersey. The girl is a working class paper girl who is sometimes invited into the private world of her privileged neighbor’s lives where she tries to make sense of what family means. Books will be available for purchase [$12, cash only] and Tj Oriola will perform a selection of songs to honor the girl's voice.
