PEN at Lit Crawl NYC
Join PEN on the second stop of Lit Crawl Brooklyn for an evening of karaoke and performances with PEN Members Elliott Holt, Alina Simone, and Leigh Stein, who will be belting out their favorite songs, fielding questions about their work, and entertaining karaoke requests from the audience. From 80s Cold War paranoia to 80s pop, relive your favorite classics with these writers-turned-singers.
May 18, 6:15PM
163 Court Street
Elliott Holt‘s short fiction has appeared in The Pushcart Prize XXXV (2011 anthology), among other places, and she was the runner-up for the 2011 PEN Emerging Writers Award. Her first novel You Are One of Them will be published by the Penguin Press on May 30, 2013.
Alina Simone is a Brooklyn-based singer and author. Her books include the essay collection You Must Go and Win and the novel Note to Self. You can hear her cover of “Oops!…I did it again” here.
Leigh Stein is the author of the novel The Fallback Plan, which New York Magazine called “a masterwork of the post-collegiate babysitting genre,” and a book of poems, Dispatch from the Future (both Melville House, 2012). She is at work on a memoir about death and the Internet.
