A simple belief...


That listening to great writing while sipping great beer could make both experiences better. Brews + Prose was founded in the summer of 2012 with this idea in mind and six years later our mission has grown to showcase America's great authors to Cleveland and to showcase Cleveland to America's great authors. We want you to join us. Readings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the beautiful Ohio City Room at Market Garden Brewery located at 1947 W 25th St, Cleveland, OH 44113. And when you buy a book, you'll receive a free beer.

Kevin Young is a public intellectual, the editor of eight books and the author of 13, including the 2018 Anisfield-Wolf winning Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News. He spent six years researching and writing this cultural history of the covert American love of the con, and its entanglement with racial history.

This event is presented in partnership with the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards, Brews and Prose, Cleveland Foundation, and Worthington Yards. It's a free event, but please make a reservation here.
