Geek Love: Literature, trivia and a Bowery Boy in Brooklyn

This Monday, April 1st, in support of Lit Crawl NYC, I'll be appearing at the literature event 'Geek Love' at The powerHouse Arena in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

I've done a reading with Lit Crawl NYC in the past, and it's a terrific (and intense) way to enjoy local literary stars under the guise of visiting a few homegrown bars. They deserve your support, and frankly, powerHouse is a great space and bookstore, to boot!

The core of Monday's soiree will be a trivia contest, so bring a friend or find some new ones while you're there.  I'll be delivering a couple of the literature trivia questions, so you know there may be a couple with a historical bent. The event starts at 7pm, with trivia around 7:30 or so.

Trivia prizes will be provided by Brooklyn Winery, Angelika Film Center, Kings County Distillery and many more.

Here's the official description of the event. Hope to see you there!

"Whether you’re into Harlequin romances or Proust, come seek your book-loving soul mate at Geek Love. Lit Crawl NYC’s “mixer of the minds” brings together the sexiest dorks in the Big Apple for a night of drinks, bookish trivia, and fun prizes. Bring your buddies and make some new ones—we’ll assign you to a team of cute and brainy strangers to guarantee you’ll go home with a prize, a date, or at least a good story!

Singles, “takens,” and everyone in between welcome. The $15 admission includes one drink and a $5 credit at the powerHouse store. Proceeds benefit Lit Crawl NYC.

Featuring a lineup of bookish guests, including Emma Straub (Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures) and Teddy Wayne (The Love Song of Jonny Valentine), and an Event Committee of editors, publishers, and publicists from the lit world.

Buy tickets here (but hurry, as they will probably sell out!)
