Debra Matsumoto, publicity manager for North Atlantic Books, sent me an interesting email the other, which she gave me permission to share:
Dirty Laundry: Loads of Prose was the brainchild of some freelance producers who love books. On Nov. 10, 9:30-11 pm, laundry and language will spin together at the Avenue C Laundromat, 69 Avenue C @ 5th St. in the heart of the East Village. Following a successful inaugural event with Legs McNeil and Sam Lipsyte in August, this second installment will feature Rob Brezsny, the syndicated astrology columnist for The Village Voice and Jungian beatnik, and fiction writer Kelly Link.
This format is urban multi-tasking genius and creative guerrilla bookselling for fly-over city centers where competition for attendance is the most challenging and competitive. For more information, please contact Emily Rubin, firstname.lastname@example.org; cell: 917.501.9825.
Too bad it's a Wednesday. Hard for me to get to Manhattan in the middle of the week. But it sure sounds interesting.
