Are the walls of your office cube closing in on you? Have you spent one too many evenings at home with the cat? If you've got cabin fever, we've got the cure.The Boston Book Festival, along with our partners 90.9 WBUR and The Drum literary magazine, presents Lounge Lit, a new series of literary outings at the hip (and aptly named!) Think Tank in Cambridge.
ZIP Code Stories Live: Thursday, February 16, 6pm-8pm
Inspired by the popular Radio Boston series, we're bringing together Boston-area authors Holly LeCraw, Steve Macone, and Dawn Tripp to read very short stories inspired by Boston-area ZIP codes. Attendees can also sign up at the door for a chance to represent their neighborhood and read their own 500-word ZIP code stories during our open mic. Hosted by Henriette Lazaridis Power, editor of The Drum, and Anthony Brooks, co-host of Radio Boston.
Literary Trivia Night: Thursday, March 8, 6pm-8pm
Do you know your assonance from your alliteration? Do you know the difference between Invisible Man and The Invisible Man? Join some other notable know-it-alls--Chris Castellani, Jennifer Haigh, Andrew McAfee, and Christina Thompson--in a fierce and wickedly funny battle for literary trivia supremacy, hosted by WBUR's Meghna Chakrabarti. Sign up at the door for your chance to participate, or just sit back and watch our teams duke it out!
Readings with a Twist: Thursday, April 19, 6pm-8pm
If you're tired of the same old literary reading scene, imagine how the authors must feel! We're going to shake things up by inviting some up-and-coming literary talent (including Busy Monsters author William Giraldi) and mixing them with some professional readers (includingRadio Boston's Adam Ragusea). You'll never hear dialogue the same way again! Dramatic, funny, confrontational, unexpected--no matter what, it's sure to be fantastic.
Tickets for each event--which go to support the Boston Book Festival and The Drum and include complimentary appetizers and beer or wine--are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Click here for all the details.
