get lost and live
bummed no more

october 25th at Achilles Heel, the sweet little wine joint in greenpoint in brooklyn. achilles is a nice place; it looks like a set from The Knick kind of. and maybe the woodstove will be going while writers are reading and people are drinking & listening. 
you'll be able to purchase all the in-print books on The American Typewriter Press too, so bring a few extra bucks. 
because wine, whiskey, beer and books. what else is there but films, music, words and love?

here's the bios of the dudes:
