DUMBO has become the artistic capital of Brooklyn, or as Two Trees says, the “Creative Capital of NYC,” so maybe its no surprise that DUMBO would attract the likes of Salman Rushdie.
Salman Rushdie, the legendary author, will be in DUMBO to celebrate the release of his new book, Luka and the Fire of Life, on its release date, November 16th. He will also be available to sign copies of the book.
Scheduled for a mere half hour window, from 1 to 1:30 pm at The powerHouse Arena at 37 Main Street in DUMBO, this provides a unique opportunity to meet a literary icon.
The author of 15 previous works, including The Satanic Verses and Midnight’s Children, he is considered one of the most important contemporary British authors.
Due to time constraints, the powerHouse announcement states, he will only be able to sign books purchased at the signing.
