WATCH: Amy Leach and Eula Biss on Our Interconnected World
Hosted by Greenlight Bookstore
Amy Leach launches her new book, The Everybody Ensemble, at Greenlight Bookstore. In this series of wildly inventive essays filled with praise songs, poetry, ingenious critique, soul-lifting philosophy, music theory, and whimsical but scientific trips into nature, Leach sets off an irrepressible celebration of our oddball, interconnected world. Equal parts call to reason and to joy, The Everybody Ensemble is for lovers of Ross Gay, Anne Lamott, Annie Dillard, and has even been likened by Billy Collins to “the shenanigans of Lewis Carroll and James Joyce.”
Acclaimed author Eula Biss (Having and Being Had) joins Leach for an evening that’s a potent and effervescent tonic for our times.
