WORD definitely has something for everyone on their May events schedule. As they say..."Seriously. We'll be visited by 45 writers/illustrators/musicians over the next month, including 13 author events (with representation by at least 12 indie presses) plus five running group sessions, four Gym Park storytimes, an afternoon Bananagrams tourney, two book club meetings and one fantastic opportunity to drink gin and whiskey with Daniel Handler/Lemony Snicket!
An Hour (or two) with Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket). Sip special cocktails made by the fine bartenders at Coco66 and listen to Handler read from and talk about Bernard DeVoto's cocktail manifesto The Hour. This is a ticketed event - please reserve your spot! Tue, 05/25/2010 - 7:00 - 9:00pm
