The very fine indie bookstore BookCourt in Brooklyn hosts a “Small Press Night” once a month (this is their second). This month they’re featuring Graywolf Press, a nonprofit publisher who I’ve heard takes very good care of their authors. Benjamin Percy, whose latest novel The Wilding was featured recently on FWR’s Book of the Week Giveaway, will be there to read. Jessica Francis Kane will read from her debut novel The Report, a re-imagining of a World War II civilian disaster that has been getting very good reviews. If you didn’t win one of the Benjamin Percy-signed books, and happen to live near Brooklyn, now is your chance to lay your hands on a signed copy, and ask him any question that didn’t make Shawn Mitchell’s recent interview with him for FWR.
The event is on Tuesday, October 19 at 7 pm at BookCourt. You can find full details, and directions to the store, at www.bookcourt.org. Hope to see some of you there!
