Two writers I know, and who have been a part of my New York-based writers group, are reading in Brooklyn from their debut novels this month.
Sharon Guskin will read from The Forgetting Time at her book launch at the Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO on February 3rd. The book is about a four-year old boy, Noah, who has nightmares that signal something deeper than a sleep disorder. His mother and a psychiatry professor set off on a journey to find the root of Noah’s dreams.
Guskin will be going on a book tour after the Brooklyn reading, including stops in Wisconsin, Washington State, California and Florida. Check out her tour dates, if you are near any of those cities.
And Leland Cheuk, who I interviewed on the site last year, will be reading at an event sponsored by the NY Writers Coalition at BookCourt on February 15th. His novel, The Misadventures of Sulliver Pong, recounts a dysfunctional Asian-American family in which a father and son vie for power. Cheuk will also be going on book tour in March, to Seattle and California. You can find his dates on his website.
