George Wallace Goes To The UN

To raise awareness of the ongoing crisis in Greece and to celebrate George Wallace’s book EOS: Abductor of Men, a bilingual poetry collection (Greek-English) dedicated to the contemporary struggles of the Greek people, Three Rooms Press presents a special bilingual benefit reading on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 at the Permanent Mission of Greece to the UN in New York City.

Wallace, a Huntington LI resident and native of the town, was Suffolk County's first poet laureate, and is currently writer in residence at the Walt Whitman Birthplace.

According to Three Rooms Press, publishers of EOS, Wallace rivets readers with his thoroughly original, modern day poetic flow, elevating bakeries to the temples of gods and love to a powerful river

Admission to the event is free, and tickets are limited. All profits from books sold at the event will be used to support Project Hope for Greece, a movement aimed at creating philanthropy amongst North Americans in response to the worst financial and humanitarian crisis facing Greece in an entire generation.

Readers include actress, writer and philanthropist Anthoula Katsimatides, distinguished Greek actress/director Martha Tompoulidou, writer and philanthropic consultant Marina Stenos, and Three Rooms Press co-directors Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges.

“George Wallace realigns the rules... And the transcendent spirit, above materiality, is the spirit of Greekness, of Greeks. The poems in EOS are hopeful poems of what is possible, real, holy. The collection leaves me with a belief in the endlessness of people, their connection to the past—and to each other, and to all time.” — Tryfon Tolides, Tsotili, West Macedonia, Greece, Lannan Foundation Resident
