So, now that Greenlight Bookstore is no longer just Ft. Greene's bookstore but OUR bookstore too, I'm happy to trumpet their kooky and informative and entertaining goings on. I was at a storytime a weekend ago and was happily surprised by the vibe and turnout. Other readings have been similarly well-attended. But nothing prepared me for the news of their offsite talk happening at Kings Theater, with none other than Mike Tyson, the once unstoppable brute force who almost single-handedly destroyed the concept of professional boxing, then came crashing back to earth, spectacularly. The doc on him is pretty great too, btw.
So...that's the book, taming the beast (great cover).
Here's the event:
