The Accompanied Literary Society’s Forward-Looking Party

I just realized that I never got around to posting these pics from last Friday night’s Accompanied Literary Society party in the penthouse of the Forward Building, the original office of America’s leading Jewish newspaper. Hostess Brooke Geahan posed with Arnon Grunberg, shortly after he’d read a hilarious scene from his new novel, The Jewish Messiah. Watching from the audience were Victoria Redel—who had just read from her latest, The Border of Truth—flanked by fellow authors Porochista Khakpour and Donna Masini. Before, between, and after the readings a klezmer band kept things hopping, while literati like Zadie Smith, Barry Yourgrau, and David Margolick mingled in the wide open space (which is, I’m told, available for sale as a residential apartment, if you have a couple million lying around).
