Book Release Party
Ok all you Red Hookers..um Red Hookians? Whatever the correct term is. It's time to show your Red Hook pride by coming out this Thursday, November 17th at 7pm for a book release party of "Here in Red Hook". It's a photography book by Andy Vernon-Jones about the things that make Red Hook. According to the bio,"the book is composed of photos taken in the streets, alleys and abandoned lots of the Brooklyn neighborhood of Red Hook and combine a documentary approach with an art-photography sensibility. The photos express the beauty and struggle of life in Red Hook. Many of the portraits are of young people who are at the cusp of adulthood; their gazes show their toughness and their hope for the future. " The party will be held at the Lucky Gallery, 360 Van Brunt Street (between Sulivan and Wolcott) and there will be food and drinks from local establishments. Baked, Breuckelen Distilling, The Brooklyn Ice House, Esser Vineyards, The Good Fork, Kevins, Sixpoint Brewery, and Steve's Key Lime Pies will all be providing refreshments. With a list like that how could you not come hang? See you there!
