Wil Medearis in Conversation with Rachel Lyon

To celebrate the release of his first novel, RESTORATION HEIGHTS, Wil Medearis will be joined by Rachel Lyon (author of SELF-PORTRAIT WITH BOY) for a conversation about gentrifying Brooklyn and the collision, collusion and conflicts between the worlds of art, real estate, the wealthy, the hipsters and the people of color they displace.

RESTORATION HEIGHTS is the story of a young artist, a missing woman, and the tendrils of wealth and power that tether Brooklyn's art scene to Manhattan's elite. For fans of Jonathan Lethem and Richard Price. ""An atmospheric and poetic noir debut."" (Lisa Unger).

Rachel Lyon's debut novel, ""Self-Portrait With Boy,"" also set in the context of a gentrifying neighborhood, explores what happens to  the bonds and relationships when a young photographer has to choose between advancing her career and protecting a woman she has come to love.
