225 Smith Street, Brooklyn, New York 11231
Cheston Knapp presents his new essay collection, Up Up, Down Down.

Daring and wise, hilarious and tender, Cheston Knapp’s exhilarating collection of seven linked essays tackles the Big Questions through seemingly unlikely avenues. Taken together, the essays in Up Up, Down Down amount to a chronicle of Knapp’s coming-of-age, a young man’s journey into adulthood, late-onset as it might appear. He presents us with formative experiences from his childhood to marriage that echo throughout the collection, and ultimately tilts at what may be the Biggest Q of them all: what are the hazards of becoming who you are?

Cheston will be joined in conversation by Joshua Ferris, author of National Book Award finalist Then We Came to the End.
