Lit Crawl Invades Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill

The SF-NYC fest is launching its first Brooklyn series.

Readers, writers and social drinkers, rejoice! San Francisco's legendary LitQuake is bringing its signature brand of booze-meets-Byron revelry to Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill for the first Brooklyn Lit Crawl on May 19.

While a Manhattan version of the literary-themed bar hop has existed for the past four years, this is the first time creators will be venturing into the better borough.

More than 30 authors will be represented at 14 separate events that day, such as literary-themed trivia, Taboo, and even a cabaret. A list of participating venues is featured below. For a complete description of the events, visit litcrawl.org.

This sounds great. And by a happy coincidence, our annual Book Sale at the Carroll Gardens Library -- 1000s of books! -- is the very same day 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Make it a bookish day and evening!

Thank you for sharing, Diane! That sounds like an excellent idea.
