PETE’S READING SERIES PRESENTS
James Hannaham (Delicious Foods) and
Sigal Samuel (The Mystics of Mile End)
Thursday, Jan. 28, 7:30 p.m.
We’re still testing the theory, but we’re *pretty* sure a cozy stage and great literature are the cure for post-blizzard blahs.
Join us for a night of great words with two incredible authors at Pete’s Candy Store, 709 Lorimer Street, in Williamsburg. Closest subways are the L/G at Lorimer/Metropolitan. Books available for sale after the reading thanks to WORD bookstore.
