“Two Trees Make a Forest”: Green Library Event with Jessica J. Lee

Online Reading, Englisch-language Event

The Green Library series invites creative writers living in and around Berlin to read and perform their work. It aims to create a space for discussions about nature and the environment. In line with Poco. Lit.’s broader aims, the series strives to draw forward lesser-heard voices and perspectives, particularly from the global South and People of Colour.

On June, 5 at 8pm, poco. lit. and Jessica J. Lee will talk about her two books “Two Trees Make a Forest” and “Turning: a Swimming Memoir”.

Jessica J. Lee is a British-Canadian-Taiwanese author and currently lives in Berlin. She has a PhD in Environmental History and Aesthetics and was Writer-in-Residence at the Leibniz Institute for Freshwater Ecology in Berlin from 2017–2018. Jessica is the founding editor of The Willowherb Review.
