Pen Parentis, NYC


from the Pen Parentis site: 
The incomparable Kelly Link, Lev Grossman and Marly Youmans share the Pen Parentis stage at the April Pen Parentis Literary Salon reading from their highly-regarded, highly-creative works. The night begins at 7pm with networking over wine, compliments of Andaz Wall Street. Readings and signings will be followed by Q&A moderated by Pen Parentis founder M. M. De Voe and its new Salons curator, novelist Christina Chiu. Come join the fun!  Pen Parentis Literary Salons were founded to celebrate the creative work of writers that are also parents, and are a great place to meet industry notables.
The event takes place on Tuesday, April 14th at the elegant Hotel Andaz at 75 Wall Street. The night kicks off at 7:00 pm, and admission is free. Books will be vended for signings and proceeds go to Community Bookstore in Brooklyn.

    It is small effort on your behalf, but I am trying to promote your book:

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
