spring welcomes Berl's Poetry Shop

in their own words:

Berl’s Poetry Shop is a poetry-focused bookstore co-founded by poets Jared White and Farrah Field. We sell independent and small press books as well as handmade chapbooks and art books. For two and a half years we sold poetry at the Brooklyn Flea and have now found a home with spring in DUMBO. Berl’s hosts poetry readings, art and literary events, book launches, and art exhibitions. Jared has published three chapbooks: Yellowcake (Cannibal Books), This Is What It Is Like To Be Loved By Me (Bloof Books), and My Former Politics (H_ngm_n Books). With Four Way Books, Farrah has published two books of poetry, Rising and Wolf and Pilot, and she has also published a chapbook Parents (Immaculate Disciples Press). Jared and Farrah live in Dumbo with their son.

come in and say hello! 
SECRET BEHAVIOR  - launch and exhibition

Berl's is opening on September 18th (6-9pm) with the launch of Secret Behavior (issue 1) - a visually stunning biannual magazine focussing on human beings and contemporary art.

After 10 years(!) of curating shows and working with amazing talent, we are taking a break and are refocusing our attention. We have made the front space available to Berl's Brooklyn Poetry Shop while we have our new backspace  -  both an office and studio, we will continue to host a series of events.

gusto - it's all about taste! 
This Thursday the 25th at spring














Experience an evening of Italian wine and foods - enjoy a tasting and discover how taste is effected when pairing. 

If you have been curious to know more about wine and what sommeliers and wine connoisseurs look for in a wine, then this is an appointment not to be missed.
Two - not one! - certified sommeliers from Italy's A.I.S.* (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) will take us through this experience. 

This is the first of what we plan to be a series of events that explore taste and where we will learn the principles (and pleasures!) of wine and food. The setting is friendly and the learning is professional. The point is to understand and enjoy what we drink and eat. And while you are at it, learn a few Italian words!

Tasting includes the following wines:
Franciacorta Le Marchesine Satén - Lombardia
Vitiano Bianco Falesco - Lazio/Umbria
Valpolicella Accordini - Veneto

RSVP - Places are limited.
There is a symbolic $25 donation
Thursday 25th April
7-9pm or maybe longer...

Luciano Mallozzi - A.I.S. Instructor; Official Master Taster
Emanuela Casaldi - Sommelier Master Class

Hosted by spring design&art
With many thanks to Antica Pesa, Brooklyn
And Superfine!

*A.I.S. is considered the most prestigious center of wine culture today.
