A book event and signing with Claire Jimenez and Thomas Fucaloro

Celebrate the publication of JHU Press author Claire Jimenez's debut collection Staten Island Stories at Parkside Lounge in New York City with a reading and signing. A collection of loosely linked tragicomic short stories inspired by The Canterbury Tales, Staten Island Stories travels across time to explore defining moments in the island's history, from the 2003 Staten Island Ferry crash and the New York City blackout to the growing opioid and heroin crisis, Eric Garner's murder, and the 2016 presidential election.

Claire Jimenez will be reading alongside Thomas Fucaloro, whose book of poetry There Is Always Tomorrow is available from MadGleam Press.
