Hot on the heels of one of its recent readers pulling down a Pulitzer (Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad), the Franklin Park Reading Series returns tonight with a Crown-Heights-focused lineup. Author Ned Thimmayya, who'll be reading from his collection "Old Ghost Stories," is an alumnus of Crown Writes (a local writing workshop of which ILFA is also a proud grad), and author Zetta Elliott, author of A Wish After Midnight (a fantastic time-traveling novel set in pre-9/11 Crown Heights and Weeksville during the Civil War) will be back to read again too. As always, the show starts at 8pm and the beer is cheap! More info from their Facebook Page below:
