TOMORROW: Thursday October 20, 2011 #
05:30 pm – 10:30 pm
*EARTHSEA Marathon Group Read & Party!!!*

Some of New York City’s finest actors, writers and musicians will
gather at the Center to read the entire novel aloud in a marathon five-
hour event. Drop in to listen, enjoy some party food and wine…maybe
even to read a page or two yourself! It’s a party plus a reading, a
chance for people to get together and enjoy good company and the work
of a contemporary American author whose work transcends genre. The
list of readers – which includes John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the
Angry Inch), Dion Graham (The Wire) & Barbara Rosenblat (pretty much
every audiobook you’ve ever loved!) – and details are here:


Both events are free and open to the public, though the Center puts
you on a special list if you RSVP via each event’s web page, and you
will be asked if you’d like to make a $5 donation when you arrive.

through Oct. 26th:
