at Alley Cat Books (see times)
Authors Robert Anasi and Bradley Spinelli struggled and scribed in the two hottest hipster enclaves in the world.

Tonight they offer up selections from their novels: Anasi's "The Last Bohemia: Scenes from the Life of Williamsburg, Brooklyn," a firsthand account of the swift Williamsburg’s transformation, which he witnessed, beginning in 1994 when he lived in the now-mythological $300-month apartment; and Spinelli's "Killing Williamsburg," which traces a suicide epidemic set in Williamsburg’s grittier days and reports “in vivid, almost cinematic detail” on the early gentrification of late 1999. Following the reading, Anasi and Spinelli will participate in a Q&A led by San Francisco director and playwright Jeremy Cole.
