From our friends at Literary Tailgate,
On Sunday, September 22 from 7 pm-10 pm, MAKE and Wakefield Media/Uncubed present an Official Brookyn Book Festival Bookend event, the 2nd Annual Literary Tailgate—a SpArts mash-up combining football and literature at the Brooklyn Brewery.
Two teams of writers will compete to gain yards and score touchdowns with their original work.
The referee, poet Matthew Rohrer, will determine if the player wins or loses yards, based on criteria invented on the spot: a player might lose ten yards for referencing vampires in a poem. Or gain ten yards for explaining how Dennis Miller came to be an NFL commentator.
The roster features Sarah Jean Alexander, Guy Cimbalo, Stephen Elliott, Mira Gonzalez, Damian Lanigan, Dorothea Lasky, Amy Shearn, and Christopher Stackhouse.
The $15 cover includes Brooklyn Brewery beer and Williamsburg Pizza slices! And, of course, readings from New York’s finest writers.
In addition to our wonderful sponsors and literary partners, the following businesses have contributed merchandise and gift certificates to the Booster Club raffle: Beer Street, Nitehawk Cinema, Root Hill Cafe, and Three Letters Restaurant.
