Don’t forget to wear your best dress and your dancing shoes. We will see you Monday!

"The Brooklyn Book Festival starts off its week of programing with a book party that doesn’t really include any books or people reading that is co-hosted by Tumblr, Electric Literature, The New Inquiry, and the LA Review of Books. It’s basically all the coolest lit. kids getting together to set up one really great party. Pretty good chance you will end up meeting at least three people with book deals, a few folks with massive Twitter followings, and see a lot of great glasses."
