Vol.1 Brooklyn and Community Bookstore are proud to welcome Laura van den Berg to Brooklyn to help celebrate the release of her new collection of short stories, The Isle of Youth. Her first collection, 2009’s What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us was longlisted for The Story Prize and shortlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Award. Karen Russell is also a fan of the collection.
Following a reading, van den Berg will be interviewed by Vol.1 Brooklyn’s own Jason Diamond.
The event will take place at Community Bookstore (143 Seventh Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) on November 6th, beginning at 7:00 pm. Facebook RSVP here.
