The Community Bookstore is one of Brooklyn’s oldest independent bookstores, located at 143 Seventh Ave. Like many of Brooklyn’s fine independent booksellers, Community Bookstore is also home to a popular series of literary events. Next Sunday, January 27th, Community Bookstore will be hosting “The Writers Series: A Collaboration between PS321 PTA and Community Bookstore.”
Three PS321 parents will be discussing their writing in a casual afternoon event at 2:00 PM. Perhaps you’ve heard of some of these PS321 parents: Lev Grossman (author of The Magicians and The Magician King), Sophie Gee, (author of The Scandal of the Season), and Anna Funder (author of All That I Am). They will be holding a discussion on fiction, which will be free and open to the public.
