The Melville House Book Group at BRC: I AWAIT THE DEVIL'S COMING

ABOUT THE EVENT:
Melville House Publishing and Brooklyn Roasting Company were talking the other day, as small companies do, and just before coming to blows, they realized something obvious, anew. Books and coffee are so great, they agreed. Totally great. Especially so when taken together.

Books. And

coffee — together, you say? Dang.

Dang indeed.

Thusly, in jubilation, a book group was born.

Join us for a monthly discussion of a Melville House book over some fine, fine free BRC coffee. This month? I AWAIT THE DEVIL'S COMING by Mary MacLane

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Mary MacLane’s I Await the Devil’s Coming is a shocking, brave and intellectually challenging diary of a 19-year-old girl living in Butte, Montana in 1902. Written in potent, raw prose that propelled the author to celebrity upon publication, the book has become almost completely forgotten.

In the early 20th century, MacLane’s name was synonymous with sexuality; she is widely hailed as being one of the earliest American feminist authors, and critics at the time praised her work for its daringly open and confessional style. In its first month of publication, the book sold 100,000 copies — a remarkable number for a debut author, and one that illustrates MacLane’s broad appeal.

Now, with a new introduction written by critic/blogger Jessa Crispin, I Await The Devil’s Coming stands poised to renew its reputation as one of America’s earliest and most powerful accounts of feminist thought and creativity.

Pick up I AWAIT THE DEVIL'S COMING at BRC in DUMBO, or wherever good books are sold.
