We like to say that our Literary Upstart readings offer readers, audience members and us, the organizers, the experience of feeling a part of a literary community. Booze, in our experience, is very helpful in engendering these feelings of community.
The first of this year’s Literary Upstart readings, presented by the New School and Harper Perennial, will be held on Monday at the Slipper Room on the Lower East Side. While they last, there will be bottles of Dogfish Head on sale for the princely sum of $1 apiece.
(Don’t forget to tip your server: while the beer is cheap, the service most certainly is not, as a wise fellow once said.) (Maybe more than once.)
So yes. Upstart on Monday. Dollar Dogfish. Just please don’t get so into the literary spirit that you try to set any records.
