Joey Palestina launches new book of poetry, with special guests

The Creativity Caravan, an art gallery and studio space located at 28 South Fullerton Ave. in Montclair, NJ, announces a weekend of reading, art, and performance featuring Joey Palestina. Palestina will be debuting the launch of his first book of poetry, Cyber Crush Sundays, which focuses on the surreal world of online interactions following heartbreak and loss. As Palestina writes, it is “the blur between the screen and the ground . . . Expectations we set while shopping for faces, and then, the disappointment.” Tickets are ONLY online at www.josephpalestina.com

Special guests Thing-One will perform (Palestina is a founding member), and artists Steve Kelly, Gregory Gramm, and Nick Gaeta will showcase their artwork. The event takes place Friday, Saturday, Sunday, November 16, 17,18 at 7 p.m. at The Creativity Caravan, 28 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair. Only 23 tickets will be sold for each evening. Tickets are $25 and include a copy of the book. For more information visit www.josephpalestina.com.
