Brooklyn’s Best Places to Be Literary

Fireside Follies

  • Founders Eric Nelson and Mike Lala

Fireside Follies
This regular reading series in Bushwick (which touts itself as the neighborhood’s finest) attracts a smart mix of local luminaries (like Ben Greenman, Kathleen Alcott), celebrated writers from around the country (like Scott McClanahan) and people you haven’t heard of—yet. They all read in the back room of local bar Brooklyn Fireproof East, in front of a projected fire, for an audience of North Brooklyn literary types. Official website
