Akashic All-Stars: Punk New York, Past and Future
Apr 30, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| Free
Brooklyn independent publisher Akashic Books brings together the authors of three of its most exciting spring titles for a great evening of fiction and celebration! Love Maps is the second novel by Fort Greene writer Eliza Factor, author of The Mercury Fountain (which she launched at Greenlight in 2012); the new book is a meditation on love, violence, and the roots of creativity set in 1980s New York. Nathan Larson is an award-winning composer (formerly of the rock band Shudder to Think); his new novel The Immune System is the third book in his Dewey Decimal series of crime novels set in post-apocalyptic New York. Stacy Wakefield is the author of the photo/essay book Please Take Me Off the Guest List, as well as the seminal squatter’s memoir Not for Rent; her new novel The Sunshine Crust Baking Factory follows a young aspiring punk squatter in the East Village and Williamsburg in the 1990s. Join us for energetic readings by the three authors, followed by a beer reception and book signing.
