Ivy Pochoda will host a release party and book reading for "Visitation Street," her new novel based in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

The story follows two 15-year-old girls who, one summer night, raft out onto the bay but only one of them to shore. The incident sends shock waves through the neighborhood as they try to piece together the child's disappearance.

Pochoda, who lived in Red Hook for several years, will also host an audience Q&A and a book signing at the BookCourt event.
