Poetry Reading | Unveiling: Poems and Paintings


UNVEILING is a poet and painter collaboration in the New York School tradition. Twenty poems by acclaimed Brooklyn poet Robert Hershon alternating with sixteen paintings by his daughter Elizabeth Hershon, a painter, ceramicist, and poet. Bob Hershon was one of four co-founders of Hanging Loose press in 1966; he remained active with the press until his death in 2021. A widely published poet himself and a native Brooklynite, he was part of New York City’s poetry scene for more than a half-century. The poems included in this volume include all of his last written work. Bob Hershon also maintained a close connection with the New York art world, counting many painters among his friends. Elizabeth Hershon, Bob’s daughter, is a teacher, and the art editor of Hanging Loose. She lives in the East Village, but grew up in Brooklyn. Bob approached her in 2020 with the idea of doing a book together: her paintings and his poems. The result is UNVEILING. With readings from: Kimiko Hahn, Mary Bonina, Charles North, Justin Jamail Jiwon Choi, Sherman Alexie, Joan Larkin, Bill Zavatsky, Joanna Fuhrman, Gerald Fleming, Dick Lourie, Mark Pawlak, Tony Towle, Caroline Hagood, Steve Schrader,  Chuck Wachtel, Abby Freedman and Elizabeth Hershon.
