Wednesday night will feature I Like Your Glasses, our hotly anticipated Literary Speed Dating event. This event is sold out, but sign up to the wait list to keep abreast of future events and grab yourself a ticket if someone drops out.

On Thursday, the storytellers of The Moth StorySLAM will be waxing lyrical on the subject of ‘Home.’ 10 stories, 3 teams of judges, 1 winner. $8 at the door. This event always sells out. Limited seating; please arrive early.

Friday sees us celebrate the release of Jezebel.com’s first book, appropriately named The Book of Jezebel in The Age of Ladyblogs.The book’s co-author Kate Harding will be joined by Jessica Coen, Anna Holmes, Edith Zimmerman and others for a discussion that promises to take in everything from pop culture to politics to modern womanhood.

And on Saturday, we’ll be hosting Then and Now, a book club reveling in history and pop culture. This week’s book is Sam Kean’s delightfully titled,The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements.
