Ghost Map Reading at Book Court Tonight

Park Slope resident and author Steven Berlin Johnson, who is also one of the people behind the newly launched website is reading from his new book The Ghost Map at the Book Court tonight. The reading is at 8PM at 165 Court Street in Cobble Hill. (Check out an item on this and tonight's Stoop Series over at the Brooklyn Record.) The book is the subject of a long essay in New Yorker, which calls it a "vivid history" of the work of mid-19th Century doctor John Snow in identifying contaminated water as a source of transmission of cholera. Among other things, outside. in aggregates blog and news content by zip code and has a number of other interesting features.

Check both out.
