October 11th: Raise a Glass to Kingsley Amis with Vol. 1 Brooklyn, NYRB Classics and Brooklyn Gin


To celebrate the re-release of two books by iconic British author Kingsley Amis, Lucky Jim and The Old Devils, New York Review of Books Classics and Vol. 1 Brooklyn present an evening dedicated to his life and work.

Rosie Schaap (New York Times Magazine “Drink” writer and author of the forthcoming book Drinking With Men), Parul Sehgal (Editor at the New York Times Book Review) and Maud Newton (writer and critic) will all share their thoughts on Mr. Amis. And since no celebration of the life and work of Mr. Amis is truly complete without cocktails, Brooklyn Gin will be on hand to serve gin and tonics.

This will be taking place at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Thursday, October 11th, beginning at 7:00 p.m. RSVP at Facebook.
