Books: Words by the Water: Akashic Books Night, August 20th, 7pm

How It’s New York: Summer in NYC, the publishing capital of the world (I think it still is), always involves outdoor fun. So here’s an outdoor event about books.

How It’s Irish: Some of the writers are Irish, including NYIA’s own Kevin Holohan.

The Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn and WORD present Words by the Water, a four-week outdoor reading series along the East River. Each event focuses on publishers/authors with a local focus. Save the Date: AUGUST 20.

On Monday August 20th at 7p.m.the third reading will take place at East River State Park, (Kent Ave and N 9th in Williamsburg, Booklyn) and will feature Akashic Books authors Shira Nayman, Elizabeth Nunez, and Irish American Writers and Artists member Kevin Holohan.

Akashic Books is an indie publisher based in Brooklyn. Show up and support!

There are also Words by the Water events on August 6 and August 13. Check them out here!
