Don your party hats — Boulevard Books is having a birthday bash.
The Dyker Heights bookstore is marking its one-year anniversary on May 21 with cocktails, cigars, music and readings. And at a time when bookstores seem to be closing left and right, it’s a cause for celebration.
Tatiana Nicoli opened her shop in June in the bookstore-deprived neighborhood as a way to connect with people — even naming it Boulevard Books because “the boulevard tends to be where everyone gathers.” It seems to have worked.
“Your acceptance as a community have been the core of Boulevard’s survival,” Nicoli wrote to her patrons this week. “Here’s to many more years of serving you and the Dyker Heights community.”
For now, you can enjoy readings from three diverse authors at the party: Suzanne Corso, author of “Brooklyn Story,” “Adults” phenom Alison Espach, and Jane Bordon, a comic behind the memoir, “I Totally Meant To Do That.” Because it wouldn’t be a proper bookstore birthday without a book signing, or three.
Boulevard Books [7518 13th Ave. between Bay Ridge Parkway and 76th Street in Dyker Heights, (718) 680-5881], May 21, 7 pm. Free.
