The April 12, 2010 issue of The New Yorker (out on newsstands April 5th) features a story called “The TV” by our own Ben Loory. “It’s about a TV,” he explains. This one is not to be missed.
The star-studded lineup includes Sam Lipsyte, Colson Whitehead, Dave Hill, Michael Showalter, and Lorelei Lee (who really would kick ass in a literary death match). TNB’s Shya Scanlon will be on hand.
Colonel Hector Bravado, employer of perhaps the greatest pen name in all of history, is your host for a night of drunken debauchery wholesome family fun. On the docket: Erika Rae, Megan DiLullo, Ben Loory, Aaron Dietz, Alexander Chee, Tom Hansen, Erica Dawson, and Gina Frangello. There will also be other TNB folks present for the post-event drinkfest singalong.
Rich Ferguson, Ellyn Maybe
Janet Fitch, and Steve Abee.
Who could possibly ask for more
Than an event co-hosted by Lenore
And Milo Martin, that features poets?
Gonna be great.
I can’t wait.
One of many Gotham stops on the F train that is the Gina Frangello book tour, this evening also features Robin Antalek, Allison Amend, and Zoe Zolbrod (which means we have an AA and a ZZ…what are the chances?). Kimberly Wetherell will be in the house, and Greg Olear will serve as Master of Ceremonies and token Y chromosome.
