Tonight: Fort Greene Indie Bookstore Kickoff Party at BAM

Couldn't get enough literature at the Brooklyn Book Festival Sunday?

Then come to
the Fort Greene Indie Bookstore Initiative's (FGIBI) Bookstore Kickoff event -- that means party -- tonight from 7 - 9 p.m.

Because of the overwhelming Fort Greene community response, they've decided to change the location to accommodate more people at the event. The party will now take place in the lobby of the BAM Harvey Theater at 651 Fulton Street, between Ashland and Rockland.

Bookstore entrepreneur Jessica Stockton Bagnulo will be there, along with Brooklyn author Colson Whitehead, who will read one of his latest pieces at the party. Jennifer Egan and Kate Christensen will be in attendance, as well as folks from the book industry and the Fort Greene community.

Complimentary beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served. Signed books by local authors will be given away to attendees who complete a short survey.
