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!
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.
