With barely time to take a breath after my lovely tour of the bookstores, taco stands, and bars of Los Angeles, I’m off to Long Island City in Queens this Memorial Day weekend to read with a delightful bevy of crime writers. So if you’re in town this weekend, Sunday you can get your book fix in Queens, and when night falls on the City, you can join us for libations and larceny at LIC Landing, by the Coffeed. It’s also just a few blocks from The Creek & the Cave, a comedy club and CaliMex eatery that I frequented when Katie East and crew used to tear the place up. I can vouch for the eats and the brews there.
Reading with Sarah Weinman, Jen Conley, Cathi Stoler, Scott Adlerberg, Alex Segura, SJ Rozan, SA Solomon, and Nick Kolakowski will be a good time. It’s a quick hop off the E train from the PATH, that’s how I plan on getting my Jersey ass across two rivers. The festivities begin at noon, and the reading kicks off at 5pm.
