A festive literary soiree
Guernica, the Rumpus and Buzzfeed Books invite you to their holiday party this year. Hosted by author/Rumpus founder Stephen Elliot, the festivities go down at the Bell House and feature Alina Simone singing covers of 80s songs, a stand-up set from Janine Brito and readings from Geoff Dyer and Saeed Jones. Between the literary fare, Ryan Chapman (The Atavist) and James Yeh & Lincoln Michel (Gigantic Magazine) provide a naughty/nice backing soundtrack for you get down (and possibly dirty) on the dance floor. And, if you want to take part in the party-wide Secret Santa, be sure to bring a present.
