Join us Tuesday, June 4th at 6:30pm as we celebrate Belle Brock Adelman-Cannon and their poetry.

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome. This event will be held upstairs at our shop.

After a tragic accident that took the life of this remarkable poet at age 17, these poems were discovered on their phone. The poems in Every Time They Call Me She are concise, loving, honest, and brilliant.

 

Books may be purchased in-person and via phone before the event or in-person during the event.


Belle Brock Adelman-Cannon was born February 10, 2006, in New Orleans. Over the course of their seventeen years, they excelled at a variety of pursuits, including languages (French, Hebrew, German), dance, fashion design, gardening, and writing. They attended International School of Louisiana, Benjamin Franklin High School, and the pre-professional program at the New Orleans Ballet Association. They worked at Touro Synagogue, Grow Dat Youth Farm, and Henry S. Jacobs Camp. Their spiritual cornerstones were queer identity, Judaism, and their beloved hometown, especially their Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. They were exceptionally charismatic, attracting a huge number of devoted friends. These poems are their first and only publication.

They died on June 3, 2023, after which their mother discovered these poems on their phone.
