Organized by Bookforum Editor Albert Mobilio, Double Take is a unique reading series that asks award winning and emerging poets, novelists, editors, and artists to trade takes on shared experiences.

Joshua Furst & Vince Passaro remember New York in the gray light of the 1970s.

Barry Schwabsky & Joyelle McSweeney uncover the stygian mysteries of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Luis Jaramillo & Matthew Brookshire spend time at Methodist Hospital on Christmas Eve.

Luis Jaramillo is the author of The Doctor’s Wife, winner of the Dzanc Books Short Story Collection Contest, an Oprah Book of the Week, and one of NPR’s Best Books of 2012. His work has also appeared in Open City, Gamers (Soft Skull Press), Tin House Magazine, H.O.W. Journal, and the Chattahoochee Review, among other publications. He is the director of the MFA in Creative Writing program at The New School.

Matthew Brookshire is a songwriter and theater artist originally from North Carolina. His recent collaboration with choreographer Keely Garfield, Wow, is a meditation on the work of British pop music icon Kate Bush. In 2012, Twin Pines, another dance-theater piece with Garfield, received a Bessie Award nomination for Outstanding Production for its performances at Danspace Project. Matthew contributed original music to Garfield’s Telling the Bees at the Chocolate Factory. His music for film includes original songs for Palindromes, directed by Todd Solondz. Matthew’s two albums, 8 Songs and Best Friend, are available on iTunes.
