Join this crawl for free literary-themed events in various downtown locations
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. Now five years strong and with a Brooklyn edition also under their belt, Lit Crawl returns to Manhattan for another round of beers and literature. This time, the crawl includes three 45-minute phases allowing for 28 literary-themed events in East Village and Lower East Side bars, restaurants and galleries. Highlights include ghost stories with Lapham's Quarterly, trivia served up NPR's Ask Me Another-style and overheard conversations of the sexy sort with Gigantic & VICE. The evening comes to a head at Happy Ending with a free after-party open to all 21+ crawlers.
