Join this crawl for free literary-themed events in various Cobble Hill bars & galleries
After causing quite a stir in San Francisco, Litquake brought their formula for presenting literary fare in a variety of venues eastward back in 2008. Last year saw the group's first venture into Brooklyn and things went so swimmingly, they are back for another round of beers and literature. This time, the crawl includes three 45-minute phases allowing for 20 literary-themed events in Cobble Hill area bars and art galleries. Among the events returning you’ll find Smith Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir Slam and Tin House’s Fighting Words Trivia Feud with new additions being a Gotham Writer’s Workshop literary flash mob and a translation of new writings from Japanese authors by Tokyo-based lit magazine, Monkey Business. The night comes to a head at 61 Local with an after-party open to all 21+ crawlers.
