Bravo to Friends Of Carroll Gardens Library, who have been very busy since they launched the group in early 2011. Not only have they hosted fundraising events to support our local branch, they have also hosted wonderful programs for the community. This fall, they are bringing bestselling author Arthur Phillips and the Guerilla Shakespeare Project to the library for an evening of "innovative entertainment." Read on:
“An Evening With Arthur Phillips”
Wednesday, November 2, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
at the Carroll Gardens Library
396 Clinton Street, on the corner of Union Street
The area of South Brooklyn known to some as “BoCoCa” (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens) is teeming with talent – a fact no one needs to remind the recently-chartered Friends of the Carroll Gardens Library about. The organization has announced not just a reading by bestselling author – and local resident – Arthur Phillips, but a performance by vibrant indie theater company Guerilla Shakespeare Project to be held at the Carroll Gardens Library on November 2, 2011 from 7 to 9 p.m.
“I am so excited that Arthur Phillips and Guerilla Shakespeare will be coming to the library for this event,” says Friends of the Carroll Gardens Library president Nina Guralnick. “Our Friends group is committed to programming enriching activities for the community. We are thrilled and grateful to be working with such an accomplished and talented author.”
Phillips has been described by the Washington Post as "one of the best writers in America". His latest novel, The Tragedy of Arthur, contains a play-within-a-novel, from which Guerilla Shakespeare will perform readings.
