Largehearted Lit with Peter & Emma Straub and Austin & Lev Grossman

Largehearted Lit is a reading series inspired by this blog's Book Notes feature. Inspired and previously hosted by the talented author Jami Attenberg, the series has readings by authors featured in the Book Notes series along with musical guests.

The family-themed May edition of the Largehearted Lit monthly reading is Tuesday, May 10th at 7:30 p.m. at WORD in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood.

The literary guests this month are Peter Straub and his daughter Emma Straub, and Lev Grossman and his brother Austin Grossman. Each will read a selection and also share a story about their family member's musical taste (with time given for rebuttal, of course).

The event starts at 7:30 on Tuesday, May 10th, at WORD Brooklyn. There will be wine and doughnuts.
