One of the supreme pleasures of reading is the way adventures begun on the page - or on the screen - take on a life of their own.
Time and date: Saturday, May 2nd, 11am (rain date Sunday May 3rd, 11am).
While our online tour features 11 stops, for our first attempt in person, we've decided to shorten it to a more manageable six stops (and an approximate total distance of 4.5 miles).
From there we'll venture to Housing Works Used Book Cafe (126 Crosby St. between Prince and Houston), where we'll try to snag some sort of coffee and snack special for those who like to nosh while they browse.
Then it's around the corner to McNally Jackson (52 Prince St. between Mulberry and Lafayette). pic right.
Then a few blocks to Bluestockings (172 Allen Street between Stanton and Rivington)
And we'll wrap things up at Freebird Books & Goods (123 Columbia St. between Kane & Degraw), which will host a little backyard party with beer and refreshments.
With about a half hour at each stop, we anticipate that the whole tour will take three or four hours. We hope that you will join us. Anyone can just show up and come along, but if you RSVP to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?Subject=RSVP, we'll be able to alert you if we need to postpone due to weather.
