An Evening with Ig Publishing: Debut Authors in Conversation
Daniel Abbott presents The Concrete
Dan Sheehan presents Restless Souls
Wine reception to follow
Greenlight welcomes back local Brooklyn indie press Ig Publishing for an evening celebrating two of their debut authors, Daniel Abbott and Dan Sheehan. Daniel Abbott presents The Concrete, a striking new novel that grapples with the effects of childhood trauma, lost dreams, human sexuality, and the difficulties of marriage, and tells the story of one mixed-race family living in the gritty and impoverished southeast side of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dan Sheehan presents Restless Souls, a moving and darkly funny meditation on friendship, the emotional ravages of war, and the way our memories simultaneously comfort and restrict us from growing up and moving on, through the story of three wayward Irish lads in the mid 90s. Abbott and Sheehan discuss their debuts in conversation, followed by a signing, Q&A, and wine reception.
