Brooklyn Celebrates Literature with 'Lit Crawl'

If we needed any more proof of Brooklyn's growing coolness, here it is: City website Gothamist is reporting that the upcoming Lit Crawl Brooklyn will feature more than thirty authors and fourteen separate events—think literary-themed trivia, Taboo, and a cabaret.

The events will be led by borough-centric bookworm-ey groups like Brooklyn Writers Space and Electric Literature; authors include Mark Haddon (The Curious Incident of the Dog at Night Time), New York Press columnist Amy Sohn, and short story writer Elinor Lipman. Venues will include La Casita Yarn Shop, Camp, Micro Museum, Zombie Hut, and Book Court, and participants are invited to 61 Local for a post-crawl party.

Lit Crawl Brooklyn takes place on May 19 at 6pm; but more are reportedly coming up around the country: Manhattan's event will be held in September, with additional Lit Crawls in both San Francisco and Austin in October.
