This Week’s Readings


Though we’re coming up fast on the holidays, there are still lots of events going on this week, including: Junot Diaz & Julie Otsuka, NYer cartoonist Victoria Roberts, the Moth StorySLAM, and a book launch for My Apocalypse.

Also: I have an excellent BookStalked interview I’ll be posting later this week (Thursday or Friday), so be sure to check back!

Junot Díaz (This is How You Lose Her) will read with Julie Otsuka (The Buddha in the Attic).  [92nd St. Y].

Victoria Roberts of the New Yorker will draw you a picture! [The Strand]

The Moth StorySLAM — always a good time. [Housing Works Bookstore] NOTE: This is actually going down on THURSDAY. Sorry about that. Wednesday appears to be a very quiet day, literarily.

Chuck Close will present the new Artifex title: Chuck Close: Painting, 1967–2012. [New York Public Library, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building]

Book Launch for My Apocalypse (stories of the end of the world by Elissa Schappell, Paul Ketchum, and many others), with editor Scott Adkins. [Powerhouse Arena on 8th]
