Saturday, October 20th at Freddy’s Bar and Backroom: The BPRS presents What Doesn’t Kill You, a launch party for the brand new YA anthology featuring readings and live music. If you’ve ever felt like the world’s out to get you, then this night is for you!
The party begins at 7:30 pm with WDKY contributors Tiffany Berryman, Matthue Roth, Abby Maguire, and two-time National Book Award Finalist Eliot Schrefer. Americana singer/songwriter Eli Bridges kicks off the musical portion of the night, followed by experimental pop/rock duo The Brooklyn Players Reading Society.
Copies of the anthology, released on Indomita Press, will be available for purchase at $16.99 a piece (cash only). No cover, 21+, 7:30-10:30 pm.
The Brooklyn Players Reading Society explores the intersection between literature and rock-n-roll, channeling poet songwriters like Lou Reed, Tom Waits, and Laurie Anderson. Listen to them on Bandcamp.
