The Secrets of Ordinary Lives

Brooklyn Historical Society Library 
Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 
4:00pm

Secrets large and small hold lives together in books by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore (Bittersweet), Bobby Byrd (Otherwise, My Life is Ordinary) and Julia Fierro (Cutting Teeth). Confusion and deceits among friends, the hidden violence of class power, and simple conversations of daily life raise the questions of whether secrets are dangerous or innocent, and if the truth is liberating or destructive. Short readings and discussion. Moderated by Rachel Fershleiser, Tumblr.

I’m going to the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday! I’m so excited… I’m so excited… I’m so scared. (Not really. I’m mostly excited!)

Last year, Tumblr sent the wonderful Kate Gavino to cover the Brooklyn Book Festival on Last Night’s Reading. We’re sending her again, obvi, but we want to send you too! Are you in the NYC area and interested in a press pass to document the festival on your Tumblr blog in words, drawings, photos, gifs, or anything else? Email bookclub@tumblr.com and let me know!

Attending authors include Zadie Smith, Roxane Gay, Salman Rushdie, Catherine Lacey, Charles Burns, Leslie Jamison, and many more!

More info coming soon, BUT please save Monday, September 15th to party with Tumblr and recommendedreading buzzfeedbooks penamerican blackballoonpublishingkickstarter in celebration of the opening night of Brooklyn Book Festival bookends!

Nick had an even better #bkbf than I did.

"She has the severe looks — plucked eyebrows, bright lipstick, pantsuits — of a woman who has channeled an intolerable past into a barely manageable present."
— Jess Row, whom I will be interviewing tomorrow morning at the Brooklyn Book Festival, writes amazing sentences like this. Come!

I will be doing FOUR very cool and exciting things for this year’s Brooklyn Book Festival:

- Monday 9/16: An Opening Night Party for bookends week, hosted by Tumblr, Electric Lit, and Gigantic! 7pm - midnight at The Bell House in Brooklyn. Dancing! Drinking! DJing! Galactic Gimlets! Bookish conversation!

- Thursday 9/19: The Airship and Black Balloon Publishing Spelling Bee6 - 9pm at Fontana’s Bar in Manhattan. I will be a featured contestant, and I will fail hard. You can drink my free beers.

- Sunday 9/22: Brooklyn Book Fest panel about books about love with Jess Row and J. Courtney Sullivan, whom I fangirl real bad. 10am in the Borough Hall Community Room.

- Sunday 9/22: Brooklyn Book Fest panel about whether technology is making our lives awesomer or sad with Clive Thompson and Jenna Wortham. 1pm on the North Stage.

Please come to one or all of these events and give me a high five. (No stalkers.)

Can’t wait to see you!

The Tin House Brooklyn Book Festival Bingo Board, available here or at their booth tomorrow.

This looks easier than I think it will be.

thetinhouse, will you be updating BKBF Bingo this year? Francine Prose and Adrian Tomine will be there again, but you’ll probably want to add Tom Wolfe’s white suit…

Seconding this request for an update. Pppplllease, Tin House?
