HarperCollins is opening up a temporary reading location in downtown New York called the HarperCollins BookLab.
The event space and reading lounge, which will be open from mid-September to late October, will be located in Seaport Studios. The BookLab will host a number of readings, panels, talks and parties.
“As a company committed to a literary culture, with a vested interest in the downtown area, we are excited about this Seaport opportunity,”stated Michael Morrison, President and Publisher, HarperCollins Publishers. “We see this not only as a destination for visitors, but also as a cultural hub for the growing number of New Yorkers who live and work in the area. In a world full of increasing distractions, the idea of a place to sit and read a book, listen to an author, or buy a book is a novel idea.”
