We’ll be officially launching the Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York at Bowery Poetry Club, Sunday, May 2, 8-10 pm. All are welcome; no cover charge for this event.

Cambridge UP will have plenty of books on hand at a discount. We’ll have a brief panel of readings from the volume, featuring Elizabeth Bradley, Caleb Crain, Daniel Kane, and perhaps others, discussion with the audience on the general topic of New York’s literary legacy.

We’re happy to be holding the event at BPC (Bowery btwn Houston and Bleecker), where Bob Holman‘s tradition of downtown literary arts lives on! So join us as we lift a glass in our own ongoing commitment to telling the story of New York’s literary scenes.
