Join us on Tuesday, July 23 at 7 pm at The Center for Fiction in Brooklyn where we’ll be celebrating our new edition of Virginia Woolf’s novel Night and Day, with an introduction by bestselling author Lauren Groff. Spend the evening listening to Groff in conversation with Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cunningham discussing Woolf’s work and legacy and 100 years of this oft overlooked (but still culturally resonant) gem. Tickets are $10 and include a $10 voucher to The Center of Fiction bookstore.
Virginia-Woolf-themed signature cocktails will make an appearance, so you should too. To RSVP, head over to the Facebook event.

Night and Day is an inspiring and poignant rendering of two women attempting to carve out space for themselves in a society only just beginning to recognize women’s rights. A radical and intimate portrait of love within the modern era , this novel traces the romantic endeavors of two friends, Katharine Hilbery and Mary Datchet, as they navigate the landscape of women’s suffrage. As Lauren Groff states in her insightful introduction, Woolf provides “a shrewd and ultimately subversive discussion with the male writers of the Edwardian age,” in her progressive and timely work.
Celebrate this stirring work of fiction with a fun night of reading and revelry!
