Celebrating “Swann’s Way” in Brooklyn Bridge Park


As part of the Books Beneath the Bridge at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Community Bookstore and Vol. 1 Brooklyn will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way.

Against the backdrop of the East River and the Manhattan skyline, hear excerpts from one of the most important works of modern literature read by:

Paul Auster

Siri Hustvedt

Hailey Gates

Carmela Ciuraru

Damion Searls

The reading will be held at the Granite Prospect steps.

The event will be held on Monday, July 29th, beginning at 7 PM. RSVP on Facebook.

  1. Is RSVPing required? Some of those who are interested in attending are not on Facebook, but would gladly shoot an RSVP email to someone.

  2. I wonder if any of the excerpts break the rule I’ve noticed in the media of never quoting or referencing anything outside the first hundred pages of In Search of Lost Time.
