Brooklyn Book Fest Kickoff, Indie-style
Our splendid friends at Greenlight Bookstore have done it again. The Brooklyn Book Festival is upon us this weekend, and Greenlight is celebrating on Friday evening with the Brooklyn Indie Party, of which we are honored to be a part. We’ll be there along side friends and colleagues from a definitive who’s who of the New York Indie-Pub scene, including: A Public Space, Akashic Books, Archipelago, BOMB Magazine, Electric Literature, Hanging Loose Press, Ig Publishing, Melville House, One StorypowerHouse, and Tin House. So come have a drink with your favorite underdogs and kick off the BKBF right: with good stories, a couple of drinks, and some fantastic people.
Friday, September 10, 7:30-9:30pm
Greenlight Bookstore, 686 Fulton St, Brooklyn
The Brooklyn Book Festival has become one of the premier literary festivals in the country, featuring authors and publishers from within the borough and around the world. Greenlight is proud to be a vendor at this year’s BKBF on September 12, and to participate in the Bookends project: a series of events before and after the Festival to extend the celebration of all things literary throughout the borough.
On Friday night, Greenlight will partner with some of Brooklyn’s best independent book and magazine publishers to throw a Brooklyn-sized kickoff party celebrating the spirit of literary independence in Brooklyn! Food and drinks will be provided, along with music courtesy of guest DJs Johnny Temple (publisher of Akashic Books and bassist for Girls Vs. Boys), and Dave Tompkins, author of How to Wreck a Nice Beach: The Vocoder from World War II to Hip-Hop.
