Brooklyn By The Book: Get Your Read On

Two long-standing Park Slope mainstays are joining efforts to bring literary enlightenment to our fair hood. The Community Bookstore and Congregation Beth Elohim have been hosting a monthly series appropriately named, Brooklyn By the Book. This all came about when both parties shared a mutual passion for providing an organized program that would serve the Park Slope and greater Brooklyn community through learning and sharing in the literary space and starting a dialogue with folks in the neighborhood.

It all started with a bang last fall, hosting writers like Paul Auster and Don DeLillo in the Congregation’s space. Michele Filgate, Community Bookstore’s events coordinator explained to the Brooklyn Eagle, “Both Congregation Beth Elohim and Community Bookstore wanted to create a series that was very specific to the neighborhood. Our goal is to host a mix of nonfiction and fiction events.”

Cash Mob (noun), as smugly defined by the Wall Street Journal "Part of a national movement that has shoppers descending en masse on designated local stores, where they show their support by spending lots of money. Afterward, they go out for a drink."

A combination of Cash Mob Facebook posts and Tweets recently led to a gathering of guerilla shoppers at the Tea Lounge, where local CM leader Amy Cortese gave the order to storm the Park Slope Community Bookstore. The whole thing kinda went over like a limp dick.
