This Week in Books: Summer’s Almost Done


I’m sorry to say that it looks like summer and its free events are winding down. You really need to get to Bryant Park to check out the reading room or maybe get some last minute reading time on the Central Park lawn. Whatever you choose, here’s a few reading and writerly events that’ll take us into September.

Tuesday, August 26

Word for Word Poetry at Bryant Park (seriously go before summer ends!), 7pm, FREE

Wednesday, August 27

Ariel Schrag: Adam at BlueStockings, 7pm, FREE

This is her debut novel. It would be a great opportunity if you read this book to ask questions about how she pushed herself to write through that writer’s block, what her process was, or even how she got into the market, maybe?

Thursday, August 28

Chris Leslie-Hynan Ride Around Shining reading and signing at Bookcourt, 7pm, FREE

Friday, August 29

No events found but why not check out Spoonbill & Sugartown, Booksellers tonight instead? They’re open till 10pm and we had a pretty fun time when we stumbled upon this place.

Saturday, August 30

Author Story Time: Hyewon Yum at Greenlight Books, 11am, FREE

This is for kids, but I do like listening to children’s book illustrators so I put this here.

Sunday, August 31

Gotham Writers Workshop: Creative Writing 101 at WORD Books, 2pm, FREE (but register beforehand so they have a headcount)

Monday, September 1

An Evening of Poetry with Todd Colby & Adam Fitzgerald at Bookcourt, 7pm, FREE

You can also take a break for Labor Day and just sit around, then again this is an event in the evening so you were probably already rolling around doing nothing. In which case, go to a poetry thing why doncha?
