The always spectacular H.I.P. Lit series hosted a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend event last week inspired by Paris featuring authors Angie Niles, Courtney Maum, and Julie Orrginer.

H.I.P Lit is run by Erin Harris, Kim Perel, and Brittney Inman Canty. Harris and Perel are literary agents while Inman Canty works for Pushkin Press handling the publisher’s American publicity.
