powerHouse Arena in DUMBO is hosting two exciting events this week. Tonight, stop by at 7pm to hear author and historian Stéphane Gerson discuss his latest book, Nostradamus: How an Obscure Renaissance Astrologer Became the Modern Prophet Of Doom. In this work, Gerson illuminates the lesser known details of the life of Michel de Nostredame, the Renaissance astrologer whose famous work Prophecies has remained a topic of discussion for centuries after his death. After the discussion, Gerson will stick around to sign books.
And if you’re working on your (word) game, head over to powerHouse tomorrow at 7pm for a chance to meet Brooklyn resident and word game expert David Bukszpan. In his new book Is That a Word? Bukszpan chronicles the history of popular word games and offers players unusual tips and strategies. You’ll be able to practice on Scrabble and Bananagram sets, so come ready to play!
powerHouse Arena is located at 37 Main Street in Dumbo.
