¡Book Launch Party!
Drinking in the Shadows

January 28, 7:00 PM
Soda Bar
629 Vanderbilt Avenue (cross street St. Mark’s Ave)
Brooklyn, NY

Sure, book events can tend to be, well, bookish. Some author drones on behind a podium while people fidget in metal folding chairs and make mental notes to never attend a book reading again. To make sure this isn’t one of those events, we’ve moved the venue to a bar. I’ll also be making copious amounts of very tasty guacamole (a skill I learned while working in a restaurant for the book). Oh, and there will be ice cream cake–because nothing goes together like beer, avocados, and ice cream.

The party is being co-sponsored by a wonderful immigrant organizing project, La Unión. La Unión is a New York-based group of people from the global south organizing and building power for workers and their communities–so come pick up a book, get a little tipsy, and learn how you can support the important work of La Unión.
