At 7 p.m. April 24, I’ll be at The Community Bookstore in Brooklyn to read from Paris Red and share in conversation with Brigid Hughes, founder and editor of A Public Space.
I can’t wait to see old friends and meet new ones, and I can’t wait to talk with Brigid Hughes. Rumor has it that champagne will be served, too.
I’m also excited about a Brooklyn homecoming. I lived on 9th Street in Park Slope in the rough-and-ready eighties, and I can’t wait to see how much things have and haven’t changed.
I think the design of The Community Bookstore’s website is so delightful that I keep going back just to see the animations. I particularly love the turtle who wants to sign books. The turtle gets carted away from the book-signing table on the Events page, but he comes back for a tea party on the Messing About page.
