Ig Publishing Ten Year Anniversary Party
Readings, live music, drinks and refreshments
Andrew Cotto, author of Outerborough Blues: A Brooklyn Mystery, introduced by Sheri Holman

Christopher Narozny, author of Jonah Man, introduced by Peter McGuigan
Hosted by publishers Robert Lasner and Elizabeth Clementson
Fort Greene's own independent press Ig Publishing is celebrating ten years of publishing "original literary fiction from writers who have been overlooked by the mainstream publishing establishment, and political and cultural nonfiction with a progressive bent." Greenlight is honored to host the festivities with readings by three of Ig's current crop of writers, each introduced by a literary luminary who is a fan of their work. Andrew Cotto's Outerborough Blues, a noirish mystery set in 1990s Brooklyn, will be introduced by Fort Greene novelist Sheri Holman. Kirby Gann's genre-subverting thriller of drugs and violence, Ghosting, will be introduced by novelist John Burnham Schwartz. And Chris Narozny's whodunit set in the world of carneys and vaudeville, Jonah Man, will be introduced by literary agent Peter McGuigan. Husband and wife publishers Robert Lasner and Elizabeth Clementson will MC the evening, which will include food, beer, and a live accordion player for an Ig-style book party!
