About the event:

On May 21, The Lit Salon will feature New York Times bestselling author A.J. Jacobs at the launch of his new book The Year of Living Constitutionally.. The book chronicles his hilarious adventures in attempting to follow the original meaning of the Constitution, as he searches for answers to one of the most pressing issues of our time: How should we interpret America’s foundational document?

A.J. Jacobs learned the hard way that donning a tricorne hat and marching around Manhattan with a 1700s musket will earn you a lot of strange looks. In The Year of Living ConstitutionallyHe asserts his right to free speech by writing his opinions on parchment with a quill and handing them out to strangers in Times Square. He consents to quartering a soldier, as is his Third Amendment right.

Martha Washington’s Rum Punch will be served and a performance by The Brownstone Trio will open the event, followed by an hour of conversation and audience Q&A hosted by author and journalist Michelle Young. A book signing and mingling with complimentary drinks will conclude the event. You can order the book with your tickets for pickup at the event or pre-order the book separately.

The Lit Salon is an intimate literary salon set to candlelight inside Maison Brooklyn, a lovingly restored, historic 1890s townhouse. Guests will be asked to remove their shoes inside the private home, so bring your best sock game!

Livestream tickets are $10 for the general public, or free for Untapped New York Insiders. In-person tickets can be purchased here. All sales final.

The Lit Salon is produced by Maison Brooklyn, with special partners Untapped New York, Aerangis, Ode a La Rose, and Fort Hamilton Distillery.
