MBB: Elizabeth Gordon poetry reading and signing: Love Cohoes (TNO)

Troy Night Out

Love Cohes


Market Block Books welcomes local author Elizabeth Gordon for a poetry reading and book signing of her book Love CohoesThe richly narrative, musical poems in this debut collection are marked by humor, accessibility, and lyricism. And the love they bring to bear on the old mill city of Cohoes, and all it stands for, is a tough love, a love directed outward but also inward; at segregation and the emigrant trauma buried none too deeply in Cohoes’ history, and also at Gordon's own relationship with her white working class roots. Love Cohoes transcends time, place, and politics, and includes the breakout poem Addition and Subtraction and the hilarious, irreverent mock test Are You Really Working Class?
