Join novelists Wil Medearis and Rachel Lyon (Self-Portrait With A Boy) for a conversation about gentrifying Brooklyn and the collision, collusion and conflicts between the worlds of art, real estate, the wealthy, the hipsters and the people of color they displace.
Artist Wil Medearis' first novel, Restoration Heights, is the story of a young artist, a missing woman, and the tendrils of wealth and power that tether Brooklyn's art scene to Manhattan's elite. For fans of Jonathan Lethem and Richard Price. "An atmospheric and poetic noir debut." (Lisa Unger).
