“The Audacity” Book Launch with Ryan Chapman and Halimah Marcus

Soho Press and Rough Draft Bar & Books present the launch of Ryan Chapman‘s novel “The Audacity.”

Join us for an evening of literature, cocktails, and scams. Ryan Chapman will be in conversation with Halimah Marcus, executive director of Electric Literature, followed by a vinyl set by DJ Harlan. “The Audacity,” named one of 2024’s most anticipated books by Lit Hub, has been called “A Modest Proposal by way of Succession” (Kevin Nguyen) and “fearless, irreverent, and so very funny” (Kimberly King Parsons).
