BookCourt (163 Court St., Brooklyn)

From a masseuse who secretly manipulates the scars of war with her touch to the fire that perhaps didn’t have to claim the life of a loved one to a still-born flirtation, Jennifer Vanderbes, Karen Russell and André Aciman explore the many shapes of betrayal. Granta associate editor Patrick Ryan joins these authors for a reading and conversation about their new work in Granta and the ways in which betrayal functions in a story.
