Can you spot the published work? Find out at reading series

Karina dreams of the published author lifestyle.

You should exorcise your Valentine’s Day angst now so when Tuesday arrives, you won’t notice all the hearts and chocolates and flowers and PDAs. An easy way to do this is to attend the kick-off of a new free reading series tonight at Goodbye Blue Monday in Bushwick: Silence the Silence highlights unpublished authors, so you won’t have to contend with any intolerable egos (we hope). Here’s the gimmick: one published piece will be read aloud, and if you can guess which one it is, you win a prize! If you want to really go for it, you can attempt to out-drink the “most nervous writer” for a “special secret surprise” (whatever that means). Plus, one of the readers is Team Brokelyn’s own Karina Briski, who has promised to read a piece about Tom Hanks. By the end of the night, you’ll be feeling so good about yourself, you just might get a date with one of the young literati. And voila, Goodbye Blue Valentine’s Day!

Silence the Silence, first night of new reading series, Goodbye Blue, 1087 Broadway, Bushwick. 13, 8-11pm tonight.
