We’re happy to announce that we’ll be taking part in this year’s Lit Crawl Brooklyn, as part of an event set up by Slice and Henry Holt and Company. Specifically, an event that’s been described as “a reading for discovering new voices and drinking good beer”. Reading will be:

This will take place on Saturday, May 17th, from 7:15 to 8:00 pm at BookCourt.
