Paradise Lust at Bluestockings Saturday

Hey, New York City KtB fans! This Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7pm, KtB contributor (and recent addition to the editorial collective) Brook Wilensky-Lanford will be reading from her recently published book Paradise Lust: Searching for the Garden of Eden at the legendary Bluestockings Bookstore, Cafe and Activist Center on the Lower East Side.

Paradise Lust is the true story of people who’ve searched for the Garden of Eden on Earth from the late 19th century to today. It was a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice and everything. (For a preview, read KtB editor Nathan Schneider’s interview with Brook at Religion Dispatches. Or Brook’s thoughts on the real location of Eden here on KtB.)

See more details and RSVP on Facebook. It’s a great chance to a) support a longstanding NYC  independent bookstore, b) help replenish the OWS Library, and c) get signed copies of Paradise Lust for everyone on your holiday-shopping list.  See you Saturday!
