Join us on September 5th for Summer Nights on Jupiter curated by Stephen Boyer and hosted by 
Le Petit Versailles. This September will be the final installment of Summer Nights on Jupiter at Le Petit Versailles so come join us for the magick before winter freezes us into our beds... this month we'll have readings and performances by Jsmn Gibson, Kaitlyn Greenidge, Kate Huh, Eileen Myles and CA Conrad...

Rain or shine we'll be amongst the flowers.

About us:

Stephen Boyer is a novelist, poet, performer but would rather be on Jupiter, obviously.


Jsmn Gbsn is a Marxist feminist new to reading poetry and a philly native. Like Lilith, a creature made of fire.


Eileen Myles was born in Boston (1949) and she moved to New York in 1974 to be a poet. Myles is the author of 18 books including Snowflake/different streets (poems, 2012) and Inferno (a poet’s novel) (2010). Lately she is completing Afterglow, a fantastic dog memoir. Her new & selected poems I Must Be Living Twice will be published in 2015. She’s a Guggenheim fellow and in 2014 she received a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Art. She lives in New York.


Kaitlyn Greenidge lives in Brooklyn and is originally from Boston. Her work has appeared in Green Mountains views, At Length Magazine, The Believer, Apogee Magazine and elsewhere. Her first novel is forthcoming from Algonquin Press.


Kate Huh is a NYC based artist/activist. She has exhibited her visual art, installations and films throughout the United States and Europe since 1982. She has lived in the Lower east Side for over 25 years. Sometimes, when taking a break from visual art, she messes around with words.
