We’re back for a new year! To kick things off, we’re delving into the history of racing dragons in Bay Ridge… fictionally, at least. Our guest is local author Katharine Dow, author of the short story The Brooklyn Dragon Racing Club, set right here in Bay Ridge. We’ll chat with Katharine about the story and its influences. Katherine will discuss how her recent move to the neighborhood (in the middle of the pandemic!) influenced how she’s grown to understand Bay Ridge. Along the way we’ll also discuss good hangouts for writers in the neighborhood, and more!
Our first-ever live episode! We’re at the Owls Head Wine Bar with local historian and author Henry Stewart. We’ll discuss his latest book, “How Bay Ridge Became Bay Ridge”, and take some questions from the audience.
