I Like Your Glasses: Literary Speed Dating with CoverSpy
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 7:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
A night of speed dating for those who'd rather be judged by their book cover (glasses not required). Bring your current or favorite book and meet other readers for a chance connection you might otherwise have missed on the F train as How Not to Read author Dan Wilbur and Punderdome 3000 hostess Jo Firestone keep things lively and on time.
Tickets are $10 and include a drink (beer or wine) and 10% off all books that night; 100% of proceeds go to Housing Works' mission to fight homelessness and AIDS. Hosted by CoverSpy. Registration required, so we can make sure there's someone for everyone to check out (library pun intended).
Open to all ages, orientations and literary tastes. Please buy a "lady" or "gentleman" ticket according to your gender identification. You will be asked to submit age, preference, and books with the ticket confirmation information and will be seating according to with those details.
When & Where
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is one of downtown New York’s most vital cultural institutions, presenting an eclectic mix of events -- from readings and concerts to comedy nights and storytelling competitions – featuring many of today’s most exciting artists. The bookstore is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and 100 percent of its profits go to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training, and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. As an independent cultural center, it offers patrons a unique opportunity to join the fight against AIDS and homelessness simply by buying or donating books; eating at our cafe; coming to concerts, readings, and special events; or volunteering on our staff.
