If you missed the Kickstarter and the launch party, you’ll have to get your butt to the Housing Works Bookstore cookbook section ASAP, or forever hold your peace…
Last night was pretty great! #stocktips
There aren’t a lot of bookstores where you could count on say, events focusing on Rousseau and Riot Grrl happening on the same day, and even fewer with a space as cozy and lovely as the one at Word. Kudos to booker Jenn Northington for running the show at a place that truly deserves every bit of adulation that come its way.

Thank you to beautiful genius Jenn Northington for my favorite book events in Brooklyn!
A Night with The Morning News and the Tournament of Books
Monday, March 24, 2014 at 7:00pmCelebrate the Tournament of Books, the granddaddy of high-brow bracketology that pits the year’s best books in a literary cage match with one winner: the coveted Rooster. Enter a giveaway for ToB swag, enjoy free drinks from our media partner, Tumblr, and hear readings from ToB judges past and present taking a break from the competition to celebrate their very favorite books:
- author and New Yorker writer Elif Batuman (The Possessed: Adventures with Russian Books and the People Who Read Them)
- author and co-proprietor of The Awl Choire Sicha (Very Recent History)
- novelist Elliott Holt (You Are One of Them)
- author and Oxford American editor Roger Hodge (The Mendacity of Hope)
- New Yorker editor John McElwee
- Andrew Womack and Rosecrans Baldwin (Paris, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down), the co-founders of The Morning News
For those of you in NYC, toward the end of the Tournament of Books, we’ll be having a party at the incredible Housing Works Bookstore! Also there has been word of Sriracha lollipops being made for the occasion. Hope to see you there!
Don’t miss it!
Stock exchange soup recipe swap!
SAVE THE DATE! SPREAD THE WORD! CELEBRATE THE SOUP!
On Monday, March 10th at 7pm, Ami Greko and I will be joining forces with Housing Works Bookstore Cafe for Stock Tips: A Party About a Zine About Soup.
There will be soup-related storytelling by Dave Bry, Bex Schwartz, Kevin Nguyen, and Jaime Green, drinking, mingling, and zines for sale to benefit Housing Works.
To join our Stock Exchange, bring a recipe on an index card — as scribbled or designed as you like. Drop it in my favorite turquoise stock pot and pull out someone else’s. (It’s like a free raffle, or a potluck without the mess!)
Hope to see you there!
TONIGHT! There will be free drinks, soup shots, and a Stock Exchange where you can swap recipes. Also readings and zines and hugs. Hope you can make it!
Big news, everybody! My mom got her copy of Stock Tips *and* her first camera phone!
