Brooklyn Reads: Dreaming of You with Melissa Lozada-Oliva

Thursday, October 28, 2021

7–8:30 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Celebrate the spooky season with the launch of Dreaming of You by Melissa Lozada-Oliva, Brooklyn-based writer, musician, and co-host of the podcast Say More. Written in verse, this macabre and heartfelt examination of celebrity worship follows a young Latinx poet who decides to bring Tejana pop star Selena Quintanilla back to life through a séance. The evening opens with a performance by Mia Berrin of Pom Pom Squad, followed by a reading and conversation between Berrin and the author. In honor of Halloween weekend, dress as your favorite dead celebrity for a chance to be crowned prom royalty (inspired by a pivotal scene in the book).

This program is free, but please RSVP. Add a copy of Dreaming of You at checkout.

All visitors 12 and older must show proof of vaccination and a valid I.D. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.

This program will include ASL interpretation. For access needs, please email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org.
