Flatbush Comes to Bay Ridge
October 30, 2019
I've done it in bars, I've done it in clubs, and I've done it in private homes. But in the 20 years that I've been publishing books, not once have I been offered the opportunity to do an event in a bookstore, for one of my own books, in my hometown, New York City.
Why this is so, I can't say. I know New York's a tough town. I've lived here my entire life. But other cities are happy to have me read in their bookstores. My most recent event, in St. Louis's Subterranean Books, resulted in Bobby in Naziland appearing on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's bestseller list.
In any case, that 20-year streak will end at 5 PM, Saturday, November 9. I'll be reading from and discussing Bobby in Naziland: A Tale of Flatbush at The BookMark Shoppe, at 8415 3rd Avenue, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
So mark your calendars, spread the word, and be prepared to ride the R train. That's how I'm getting to Bay Ridge.
