Celebrate D. Foy’s “Made to Break” at BookCourt


On March 19th, join Vol.1 Brooklyn at BookCourt to celebrate the release of D. Foy’s debut novel Made to Break. Here’s how publisher Two Dollar Radio describes Made to Break:

Made to Break is the story of a pack of friends celebrating the holidays at a remote cabin near Lake Tahoe, California. After being stranded by severe weather and a near-fatal accident, the friends are forced to confront the squalor, greed, and sadness from which they’ve spent most of their lives attempting to escape. Made to Break is a melancholic, savage look at relationships and the lies we tell ourselves, suffused with spirited language and humor.

This event will feature readings from:

  • D. Foy
  • Sarah Gerard
  • Sean H. Doyle

Following the readings, Foy will be interviewed by Vol.1 Brooklyn’s Tobias Carroll.

BookCourt is at 163 Court Street, Brooklyn, NY. The event will begin at 7:00 pm. Facebook RSVP here.
