An Evening with Ig Publishing
Ryan Bartelmay, author of Onward Toward What We're Going Toward
Sarah Strong, author of The Fainting Room
Hosted by publisher Robert Lasner
Refreshments provided

Fort Greene's own independent press Ig Publishing publishes "original literary fiction from writers who have been overlooked by the mainstream publishing establishment, and political and cultural nonfiction with a progressive bent." This evening, two authors present heated, moody novels, to the accompaniment of summer margaritas served by the Ig Publishing staff. Set over the second half of the 20th century, Ryan Bartelmay’s Onward Toward What We’re Going Toward is the epic story of the decline and fall of an American family from the Midwest to Las Vegas, and has been praised by fellow authors Sam Lipsyte and Ben Marcus. Sarah Strong’s novel The Fainting Room is the noirish story of an ex-circus performer, her wealthy architect husband, and the blue-haired, fedora-wearing sixteen-year-old who becomes their confidante; Publishers Weekly calls it “a masterful exploration of longing and its consequences.”
