The only literary event more cloying than a boring reading is a networking event without alcohol. The Faster Times, “a new type of newspaper for a new type of world,” is out to remedy this situation in the same way they’ve been smartly remedying sickened news models.

So will Bookforum, n+1, and many others! Here’s the Facebook invite, in case you’re a part-time writer, part-time stalker. Drink. Talk. Pitch. Gawk.
