Who’s a Bum?

Three chances to rebut The American Scholar’s recent dis of Brooklyn’s novelistic output.

  1. 1. Jennifer Gilmore

    October 10 at Barnes & Noble

    Gilmore’s well-received debut, Golden Country, traces the intertwining histories of three Jewish immigrant families who make homes for themselves in the outer borough.

  2. 2. “The Literary Review”

    October 10 at Housing Works

    The most bang for your literary buck, with readings by three authors (Shelley Jackson, Samantha Hunt, and Dennis Nurkse), Brooklynites all.

  3. 3. Jim Knipfel

    October 16 at Barnes & Noble

    Park Slope author Knipfel’s books (and his long-running column in the New York Press) have consistently been well-received. His new crime caper, Noogie’s Time to Shine, takes place on another piece of oft-reviled turf: New Jersey.
