The Book Burger Reading

On August 10th, a group of local authors across multiple genres invite you to spend the evening with them. It’s an invite unlike many you’ll come across, wherein we want you to meet us for a bite to eat at Nick’s Famous Coney Island to celebrate the last day of Burger Week before a reading at Belmont Books. After each author reads for about ten minutes, we’ll head over to Rendez Vous down the block for a cocktail or tea. What we want is a community of readers who get to know the authors, find new ones, and branch outside their favorite genre–if not just to tell a friend. Belmont Books is a lovely, if not smaller bookstore. That means you we may be at…
