On Friday May 5, Oddny Eir, author of Land of Love and Ruins, will participate in Lit Crawl's "Auto-Fiction" event with Edouard Louis and Bae Suah. The event, at NYU's La Maison Française and hosted by the PEN World Voices Festival, will focus on writers whose work falls on the spectrum of memoir and autobiography. Readings from each author's work will be followed by a brief discussion.
The first Lit Crawl NYC took place in 2008, along a rambling route from the Lower East Side, to the East Village, and over to Williamsburg. Since then, the upstart Lit Crawl has become a permanent and highly anticipated fixture on New York City’s packed literary calendar. Lit Crawl NYC brings literature to the streets via brainy readings and wacky events such as Literary Pictionary and Nerd Jeopardy alongside Tarot card readings, Flash portraiture, mobile photo booths, music from publishing house bands, and hundreds of other events full of readers, writers, fun-loving boozers, and all-around literary mayhem.
When: Friday, May 5, 2017, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Where: La Maison Française NYU, 16 Washington Mews, New York, NY 10003
