hooked by the hook
So my first official literary event of 2008 involved a pilgrimage to a neighborhood I had only visited once or twice before: Red Hook, Brooklyn. My friend Joshua Furst was reading at the legendary Sunny's Bar.
In addition to a wonderful short story read by Josh, the audience was treated to a fascinating history of Red Hook by Francis Morrone and a tale of a Spanish solider in Flanders by Rebecca Pawel.
Cool neighborhood, great venue, great readers, and definitely worth the trip. I will be back!
