Largehearted Lit with Emma Straub, Jennifer Gilmore, and Alina Simone Tonight

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 presents readings by authors featured in the Book Notes series along with musical guests.

The January edition of Largehearted Lit monthly reading is tonight at 7:00 p.m. at WORD bookstore in Brooklyn's Greenpoint neighborhood.

Celebrate Largehearted Boy’s 10th anniversary with a birthday-themed reading and fundraiser for Girls Write Now. Cupcakes will be on hand, courtesy of The Brooklyn Baker, and readers Emma Straub (Other People We Married) and Jennifer Gilmore (Something Red) will share birthday stories. Alina Simone is the musical guest, she will play a couple of songs and tell a literary anecdote or two. A raffle of book bundles, gift certificates, and cake dates with authors at the end of the evening will benefit Girls Write Now.

Optionally RSVP on Facebook
