Indelible Impressions: Franklin Park Reading Series TOMORROW

Don't miss the Franklin Park Reading Series, tomorrow at 8pm ($4 pints and great literature)!

The theme of December's mostly nonfiction, multimedia extravaganza is "Indelible Impressions." We'll be featuring a slide show of literary tattoos from Justin Taylor and Eva Talmadge's new photo anthology The Word made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide, Time Out editor Beth Greenfield will be reading from her searing memoir Ten Minutes from Home, and literary humorist Peter Hyman (The Reluctant Metrosexual: Dispatches from an Almost Hip Life) and journalist/memoirist Dan Lopez (Time Out) will share their latest work. Justin Taylor, who is also an acclaimed fiction writer, will give a sneak preview of his upcoming novel The Gospel of Anarchy.


As a tie-in to to the tattoo slide show, we'll be raffling off a $50 gift certificate to Franklin Avenue's famed tattoo shop Brooklyn Ink Spot.

The Word Made Flesh has been attracting a lot of attention. In their "Pressed for Time" feature NY Press highlighted tomorrow's event:

In the Times's holiday gift guide, it was a recommended coffee table book:

Again in the Times, a recommended "visual book":

In anticipation of Monday's event, Beth Greenfield was just interviewed by L Magazine: http://www.thelmagazine.com/TheMeasure/archives/2010/12/10/the-l-mag-questionnaire-for-writer-types-beth-greenfield

And The Times praised Justin Taylor as "a new voice that readers — and writers, too — might be seeking out for decades to come." He was also just named one of "5 Brooklyn Writers to Watch in 2011" by L Magazine.
