About this event

Please join Greenlight in welcoming acclaimed author Robin McLean to our Fort Greene events stage in celebration of Get ’em Young, Treat ’em Tough, Tell ’em Nothing—a dark, profane, and hilarious, yet ultimately humane collection of stories reporting from the eternal battlefront that is the United States. Ranging across the continent, from Alaska to Missouri, from the flatlands to the mountains, each tale is a snapshot of the political, racial, and sexual undercurrents roiling contemporary life, and each finds a way into the nerves and blood that pulse beneath the question of how to live a decent life. McLean is joined by a special guest to be announced for an evening of conversation celebrating these stories that fight, flail, and flounder on, fusing severe wit and our crudest desires into the gritty, tender heart of human tenacity.


All of our in-store events require for masks to be worn at all times. Pre-registration is highly encouraged, but not required.
