POETIC CONSUMPTION: DATE NIGHT WITH GERTRUDE STEIN
Poetic Consumption: Date Night with Gertrude Stein was a marriage of poetry, food, and community. With Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons as the inspiration Chef Evan Hanczor of Egg (Brooklyn, NY) crafted an eccentric three-course menu based on Stein's Food Chapter.
The location, a unique animal sanctuary/once bed and breakfast, was activated with readings of Stein's work by Reading Queer, Miami's literary organization for the preservation and promotion of queer literature, and a father/daughter spanish poetry duo.
This event was created for O, Miami Poetry Festival 2016 with collaborator
Lauren Monzon of Borscht Film Festival and Evan Hanczor of Egg.
