A perfect summer night’s story starts with Books Beneath the Bridge. Over 6,000 people have attended the series since 2012. Throughout July and August, join us at Pier 1 Granite Prospect on Monday nights for book readings by featured authors, representing six of Brooklyn’s best independent bookstores. Each evening will include readings, discussions, signings, and much more, as inspired by each author and our program partners. Look forward to a dynamic list of authors to be announced soon!
