New Brooklyn Bookstore on Kickstarter


Writer Michael de Zayas hopes to raise $18,420 to fund an events series at Hullabaloo Books. This Brooklyn-based independent bookstore plans to open its doors on September 30th.

The events will include readings, lectures, and writing workshops. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more about the project:

We plan to host local and international authors for readings, have monthly speakers series, hold weekly free storytelling events for kids, as well as writing workshops for teens and adults and much much more. We also consider our street presence fundamental and are creating an evocative street garden for the community to enjoy as an outdoor reading space! The vision is a combination of community garden space, writing center, literary venue for events and readings, and the best micro bookstore in the world.

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
