NYRB Classics 20th Anniversary Celebration

Doors 6:30 PM / Show 7:30 PM
This event is all ages
The NYRB Classics series is dedicated to publishing an eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction from different eras and times and of various sorts. The series includes nineteenth century novels and experimental novels, reportage and belles lettres, tell-all memoirs and learned studies, established classics and cult favorites, literature high, low, unsuspected, and unheard of. NYRB Classics are, to a large degree, discoveries, the kind of books that people typically run into outside of the classroom and then remember for life.
Tim Mohr is a former Berlin club DJ as well as the translator of our 500th title, Sand, by Wolfgang Herrndorf, and the author of Burning Down the Haus, a history of punk rock in East Germany"? Just so people know there's a logic to my being there.
$0.00 - $17.95
Murmrr Lit is proud to welcome NYRB Classics to celebrate their 20th anniversary, with readings from their new collection, The Red Thread, drinks, and dancing. Readers include Meg Woltizer, Amit Chaudhuri, Deborah Eisenberg, Francine Prose and more.
This is an official Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend Event.
"A small publisher that is a national treasure, responsible as they are for republishing or translating so many of the most astonishing books over the last two decades."
