RAB Publication Party Tonight at NYC’s KGB Lit Bar for “1984 in the 21st Century” Anthology
New York, NY: (April 5, 2017)—The innovative hybrid publisher, Riverdale Avenue Books will hold a publication and launch party for 1984 in the 21st Century with readings from the essay collection from a selection of the authors at New York City’s quirky literary bar, KGB’s, in the East Village.
The new anthology features essays on how George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984 still resonates nearly seven decades after it was published. The anthology will be published on April 4th, 2017, the date on which the novel begins in the classic dystopian novel, and will be free online at RiverdaleAveBooks.com.
After the novel 1984 made the #1 spot on Amazon’s best-seller list, Riverdale Avenue Books put out an international call for submissions of essays. Articles in the book include such notable writers as science fiction legend David Brin, Yahoo News columnist Matt Bai, feminist academic Melissa Febos, and 20 others authors, as well as average citizens.
“We thought the location of a former Soviet watering hole was the perfect place for a reading of essays about surveillance and ThoughtCrime in the 21st century,” said Publisher Lori Perkins.
Anticipated readers include Perry Brass, Sherri Donovan, David Jester, Marc Polite and Alexander Urbelis and Aaron Zwintscher. Print books will be available for sale (and signing).
