The Brooklyn Paper

Author Ann Napolitano (pictured) will read from her novel, "Within Arm’s Reach," at BookCourt in Cobble Hill on June 29 at 8 pm. Her book about three generations of an Irish-American family in New Jersey, inspired in part by Napolitano’s own upbringing, will be published in paperback by Three Rivers Press on June 28.

Napolitano’s "Within Arm’s Reach" is the story of the unplanned pregnancy of 29-year-old Gracie and its impact on her life, and those of her sister, mother, grandmother and others. Despite the serious subject matter - the guilt-laden world of multigenerational dynamics - Napolitano has been applauded in the Library Journal for her "ample doses of humor and wit."

BookCourt is located at 163 Court St. at Dean Street in Cobble Hill. For more information, call (718) 875-3677.
