Sandy Hates Books


Hurricane Sandy hates books, according to the name of a relief fundraiser at the powerHouse arena in Brooklyn this Saturday.

Although it seems unwise to anger Sandy any further (and perhaps unfair to expect a meteorological phenomenon to have an appreciation of literature), the event is completely packed with amazing writers and artists: Teju Cole, Tea Obreht, Jennifer Egan, Adrian Tomine, and the list goes on.

The suggested donation is only $10. Details here.
