Sharp Edges 500

 

The Sharp Edges book launch features new novels by Lethe Press’ Scott Alexander Hess (The Butcher’s Sons) and Mike Miksche (Paris Demands). These two authors will face off in a lively interview segment about their provocative books set respectively in the gritty streets of Hell’s Kitchen circa 1930 and in Paris’ glorious underbelly. It’ll be an evening of edgy conversations, live music, book giveaways, and of course French cheeses and Hell’s Kitchen (butchered) meats.

 

Reception @ 7PM, Interactive Interview @ 8PM
