John Wiswell at Brooklyn Books & Booze

April 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

John Wiswell, Fantasy Author

Join John Wiswell for a reading at Brooklyn Books & Booze!!


Brooklyn Books & Booze @ Barrow’s Intense is underway!

In May 2021, the Ample Hills Creamery opened its upstairs to a special reading series featuring a variety of emerging and established writers reading from their current works. Authors of all kinds read on the rooftop of the ice cream local, which shuttered in December 2022.

Since January 2022, however, the former Rooftop Readings series has moved to Barrow’s Intense Tasting Room — and as of May 2023 is now known as Brooklyn Books & Booze @ Barrow’s Intense! Each month we feature three or four different authors of different genres — science-fiction, fantasy, horror, young adult, mystery, humor … the sky’s the limit!

Here are the details:


Readings will be held from 7-9pm on the third Tuesday of each month.

Note: All ages are welcome to attend, but unless labeled as Young Adult/Middle Grade/Children’s may feature adult content, including themes and language. Also, this is a bar and a restaurant.


Barrow’s Intense Tasting Room
86 34th Street, Brooklyn, NY
Subway: D train to 36th Avenue, then about a 4 minute walk.
(This venue is inside what’s known as Industry City, a series of former industrial workspaces turned into food, drink and shopping venues. See this map for assistance, as it can be confusing the first time you go.)


FREE! You can reserve a space (also for free) via EventBrite.

Authors will also be selling/signing copies of their works, if they choose.
