Bookswap with Jami Attenberg
Friday, June 26th, Booksmith Presents: Saint Mazie BOOKSWAP with Jami Attenberg!

Bookswap is BACK to celebrate the release of Jami Attenberg's incredible new novel, Saint Mazie, the story of a loud-mouthed mensch in depression-era Manhattan who saves the city one soul at a time from behind the glass at The Venice. It's based on the true story of Mazie Phillips, a Bowery movie theater proprietress who almost single-handedly dispensed money, cheer, and unsolicited advice to the down-and-out of the lower East side.

Mazie is credited with saving a lot of lives that the city would rather have forgotten, and we're excited to celebrate her life: especially here, especially now.

Join us for a (free!) reading and signing by Jami Attenberg at 6:30. At 8, we'll have a Bookswap! $15 gets you the opportunity to have a drink and some food, hang with Jami, talk books in a bookstore all to yourself, and get some swag. All you have to do is bring a book. Tickets to Bookswap must be purchased in advance.

Jami Attenberg is the author of a story collection, Instant Love, and three additional novels, The Kept Man, The Melting Season, and The Middlesteinswhich was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fictionwith her fourth SAINT MAZIE coming out this June from Grand Central Publishing. It will be published in nine countries. She has contributed essays and criticism to The New York Times, Real Simple, Elle, The Washington Post, and many other publications. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Reading and Signing: 6:30 PM, FREE

Bookswap: 8:00 PM, $15 admission (includes food, drinks, swag). Bring a book about a Saint, drink some wine, leave with a different book. Or six.
