Lit Quake’s NYC Lit Crawl Presents: National Book Critics Revise and Recant

September 11, 2010 10:15 pm
White Slab Palace 77 Delancey St New York, NY


Goofs, gaffes, guilt.  As part of the tumultuous (and free)Litquake NYC Lit Crawl on September 11, the National Book Critics Circle and other critics make public apologies for their crimes. Critic Dale Peck and current and former NBCC board members including Lev Grossman, Lizzie Skurnick, John Reed, Mark Rotella and Jane Ciabattari, will plead for forgiveness for villainy and negligence in their reviews.  Heartfelt entreaties from the crowd will make this a thoroughly punishing and satisfying tribunal.

This is the third annual Lit Crawl New York, which originators describe as a madcap concept created by San Francisco‚Äôs brilliant literary festival, Litquake, back in 2004. It’s a bar crawl… with literature!
