Join us for a conversation with Paige Lipari, local hero and owner/cook of Archestratus Books + Foods in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Lipari is a Sicilian-American poet, music maker, cartoonist, and cook. Her collection of poems, music, and illustrations, Family of Many Enzos, was published by Augury Books in 2012. She was previously an editor at A Public Space. She worked in many of NYC’s finest bookstores (McNally Jackson, Idlewild, and Housing Works Bookstore to name a few) before opening her own. Lipari is the owner/cook of Archestratus Books + Foods, a food-interest bookshop, Sicilian cafe/grocery, community space, and collaborative durational art project in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She currently lives a few blocks from the shop with her cat Olafi Lorenzo and zooms regularly with her 99 year old Nonna, Oliva.
