Jean Prokott Book Release Party!

Friday, November 12, 6:30 – 8:30 PM @Garden Party Books

Come celebrate Rochester author Jean Prokott and the release of her new book, The Second Longest Day of the Year! Her poems tackle subjects such as suicide, mental health, body image, loss and grieving, politics, the pandemic, the environment—and yet manage to maintain a sense of humor throughout.

The book won the 2021 Howling Bird Press Poetry Prize and was selected by the judges from more than 200 submissions across the country.

The Second Longest Day of the Year will be available for purchase. The night will include readings by other fantastic local authors and a reading and signing by Jean. Snacks will be provided.

*Masking is required, along with proof of COVID vaccination or negative test, to keep everyone safe.*

It’s going to be a wonderful night enjoying our local literary talent!
