Tonight at 7pm, join WORD Bookstore as it hosts short story night at Books Beneath the Bridge. Writers include Robin Black, Tania James, Rajesh Parameswaran, Jim Shepard, and Charles Yu. The event will take place at Pier 1, Granite Prospect, in the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
And who better to read at the same series than Patti Smith? Next Monday, August 6, join Park Slope’s Community Bookstore as it curates a special evening with a poet and singer-songwriter who is inextricably tied to the New York literary scene. Beginning at 7pm on the Granite Prospect stairs, Smith will read from her 1992 book Woolgathering, after which she will interview with Ezra Goldstein, co-owner of Community Bookstore. Smith will be signing books as well.
