TOMORROW: Free Furniture And Books Followed by A Reading With Bronx Writer Martin Kleinman!


Our dear friend Charlie Vázquez, Director of the Bronx Writers Center writes:

Hello Bronx Writers!

We’ll be clearing out our former space in the basement of the Westchester Square New York Public Library this Saturday, August 16, from 12pm-3pm. We’ll be giving away tables, desks, chairs and lots of books! Come take them away…

And then around the corner at 4pm a special book presentation…read below.

Saturday, August 16 – Martin Kleinman book presentation for Home Front: The Collection (check out the review Welcome2TheBronx did on the book and interview with Kleinman.)

2700 E Tremont Avenue – 4 – 6pm – Free (#6 train to Westchester Square)

Author and native Bronxite Martin Kleinman will join us for a special book presentation for Home Front: The Collection, a short story collection that takes the reader from New York City to Belgium to New England and beyond. Described by author Jennifer Cody Epstein as “diverse, irreverent and grittily lyrical” these tales represent urban street realism with honest lingo and tone, introducing us to a cast of characters both shocking and familiar. We will close this presentation with a Q&A where participants can ask the author questions about writing and the publishing process.

Books will be available for purchase/signing by the author…
