Are you going to be in New York tonight? N.K. Jemisin, the Hugo Award-winning author of The Fifth Season and The Inheritance Trilogy, will be headlining at the latest iteration of the Franklin Park Reading Series in Brooklyn. The series is held on the second Monday of each month in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and tends to focus more on the literary fiction side of the writing world, but since they’re showcasing “socially engaged authors who address the urgent themes of racial injustice, oppression, income inequality, and self-determination,” Jemisin’s dark, thoughtful fantasy should be a perfect fit. The reading will also feature Kaitlyn Greenidge (We Love You, Charlie Freeman), Marcy Dermansky (Bad Marie), Jonathan Lee (High Dive), and Tony Iantosca (Shut Up, Leaves).
You can check the reading out at Franklin Park in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, at 8:00pm! Admission is free, and the hosts will hold a free-to-enter raffle for the authors’ books. Find out more about the series here.
