This Sunday, October 16th, the first ever Trans-verse the city pub crawl to benefit and celebrate Trans Lit Magazine’s one year anniversary. Several pubs will be visited along the way, and smack in the middle you can come help me Occupy Washington Square Park as I unleash a 20 minute can of whoop-ass (i.e., read a story. A brand new story!) in front of a crowd of suspecting (y’all) and unsuspecting (everyone else) onlookers.

The itinerary:

3PM Standard Hotel Biergarten

4PM White Horse Tavern

5PM Kettle of Fish

6PM Reading (Meet in front of Bobst Library)

7PM B Bar

8 or 9PM Dorian Gray

Come one, come all, and bring anyone and everyone you know!

  1. Eric-I’v enjoyed following your travels and your summer camp-writers conferences. Are you still planning on a visit to Giovanni’s Room in Philadelphia? Take care of yourself, Ed.Austen

    • Hi Ed,

      Sorry for the delay. I’m still hoping to come read at Giovanni’s some time, but after a pretty busy summer I’m taking a little bit of time off before booking anything. Will let you know once I do, of course. I really appreciate your support. If you’re on Facebook, please friend me!
