Ugh! Coming off my return from vacation I somehow managed to miss the launch party last night for Evan Hughes’s Literary Brooklyn. I’d been so looking forward to it, and am really looking forward to digging into the book.

If you also missed the party, you still have plenty of ways to catch up (in addition to dropping by your local bookstore on the way home from work and grabbing a copy for yourself). Hughes was on WNYC today (just a few hours before I was!) talking to Brian Lehrer. He did a great Q&A a few days ago with Mark Athitakis. There’s a review in yesterday’s Times. (Thanks to reader Lauren Ross for sending that link our way.) And on the 26th, Hughes will be leading a walking tour and conversation out of Greenlight Bookstore. That sounds like something not to be missed.
