Annual Brooklyn Indie Party!

7:30pm EST

October 2, 2020

Non-Fiction / Performance

Featuring A Public Space, Akashic Books, Archipelago Books, BOMB Magazine, Enchanted Lion, Ig Publishing, One Story, Radix Media, Restless Books, Turtle Point Press, and Ugly Duckling Presse Co-hosted by the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP). The Brooklyn Book Festival goes virtual this year, and Greenlight’s traditional Brooklyn Indie Party (ten years and counting) must go online as well! On the Friday night before BKBF, Greenlight once again partners with CLMP, as well as some of Brooklyn’s best independent book and magazine publishers, to throw a Brooklyn-sized party celebrating the spirit of literary independence in Brooklyn with an all-star revue! Each of tonight’s presses will have an editor or publisher introducing a featured author, highlighting great indie talents including Megan Cummins, Adam Smyer, Ivan Vladislavić, Kim McLarin, Jenzo DuQue, JinJin Xu, Rivka Galchen, Grace Schulman, Zahra Patterson, and more.  All ticket proceeds will be distributed evenly among tonight’s presses, making this a great way to support our beloved Brooklyn indie community while discovering new talents and seeing old friends.  Join us with the drink of your choice in hand to kick off the Brooklyn Book Festival weekend!
