The Miss Manhattan Non-Fiction Reading Series Presents: New York Stories (In Person)

Miss Manhattan is excited to join the Brooklyn Book Festival as an official Bookend event with Miss Manhattan Presents: New York Stories. Created to give non-fiction writers a louder voice in the New York literary scene, the Miss Manhattan Non-Fiction Reading Series is hosted and curated by Manhattan-based writer and photographer Elyssa Goodman. This reading will feature fabulous voices of nonfiction sharing their favorite New York Stories, recalling the city in all of its grit, glamour, and glory: Jesse Rifkin (This Must Be the Place, Walk on the Wild Side, Rolling Stone); Maria Smilios (The Black Angels, The Guardian, The Rumpus); and Felicia Fitzpatrick (Playbill, Teen Vogue, The A.V. Club).
