If you happen to find yourself in New York on Wednesday, May 19, do stop by the upstairs lounge at Pianos at 7pm for an evening of fun & games, music & mayhem, dungeons & dragons, and books & booze.

The lineup of literary luminaries includes TNB regulars Gina Frangello (Slut Lullabies) and Robin Antalek (The Summer We Fell Apart), as well as Allison Amend and Zoe Zolbrod, who, in addition to having great books coming out (Stations West and Currency, respectively), also have perfectly complementary initials.

There will be music by Madame X (not to be confused with the lounge of the same name; don’t go there; the beers are too pricey), Ted McCagg supplied the awesome poster, and Yours Truly will host.

Kimberly M. Wetherell will atttend — that we know — but rumors that Slade Ham will pop out of Allison’s birthday cake are, as of this writing, unsubstantiated.

Hope to see you there!

  1. I am so excited about this party I am having a hard time controlling myself. Plus, I’d like to give my mom a framed copy of this all-too-apt invitation for Mother’s Day!

    Great invitation by Ted McCagg; thanks for the shout-out, Greg—-and, Gina, I hope you and the other wild women sell a boatload of books! Remember your cameras—-especially if Slade pops outa the cake!

    Damn! I’m not getting to NYC till the 20th. (For mine and Gina’s reading at ZeiherSmith Gallery in Chelsea on the 22nd) Shameless Plug!! Haha

  4. Slade Ham says:

    Unfortunately, the rumors are false. If it’s any consolation though, I would much rather be popping out of a cake than hanging out in 122 degree weather. Happy birthday, Allison. Perhaps next year…

    Hello Greg,

    I will be in New York in September and I’d love to read at some TNB bash or session from my short story collection “Love Doesn’t Work” published August 2010 by Dzanc. I’m also doing some other readings in New York,
    I thought I’d try to contact you or Kimberly to see if we could set something up.

    Would be great to hear from you!
