Brooklyn Bridge Park: Books Beneath The Bridge Series

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy is presenting their annualBooks Beneath the Bridge series, sponsored by AT&T.

This free summer literary series, which features outdoor readings curated by local, independent bookstores, will begin on July 7 at 7 pm and run for six consecutive Mondays at Pier 1’s Granite Prospect.

Participating bookstores are charged with curating their respective evenings by selecting a theme and authors of their choice. In addition to hearing renowned authors read from their work, guests will have the opportunity to ask questions during Q&A and meet the authors during a book signing following the reading.
