Filip Springer at Lit Crawl's "A Most Exquisite Corpse"

On Friday May 5, Filip Springer and Sean Gasper Bye, author and translator of History of a Disappearance: The Story of a Forgotten Polish Town, will appear at Lit Crawl NYC's "A Most Exquisite Corpse" event with Francisco Cantú and additional writers and translators to be announced shortly. Here’s how the game works: One person writes the first page of a story. We send the final line of that page to the next writer, who continues the story, and so on. 

Co-hosted by Words Without Borders and Slice Literary. A part of the PEN World Voices Festival.

From East Village bars to laundromats, park benches, and bookstores, Lit Crawl NYC brings literature to the streets with readings, discussions, and events full of readers, writers, and all-around literary merriment. Since 2015, Lit Crawl NYC has been jointly produced by Litquake and PEN America, an organization dedicated to defending free expression, supporting persecuted writers, and promoting literary culture.

Taking place in three, hour-long phases from 6-9PM on Friday, May 5, everyone’s favorite literary bar crawl returns to Manhattan with games, readings, and performances in six different languages! Tell your friends, choose your events, and join us on the Crawl! See the full schedule here.
