The Book Report Reading
Once upon a time you were in third grade and you had to give book reports and it was awesome. The Book Report promises to deliver exactly what it promises: reports on books by the people who’ve read them. Join Leigh Stein and Sasha Fletcher and assorted literate guests for an evening that will remind you of 3rd grade in the best possible way.
Megan Sass is a writer, actor, and comedian. She started writing as a playwright, but has realized that people are more responsive to inane internet sketches and songs about penises than they are to serious works of drama. As an actor, she has worked with International WOW (as part of the cast of Surrender, nominated for a Drama Desk for “Best Unique Theatrical Experience”), The Shakespeare Theatre of NJ, The Public Theater, Collaborative Stages, Shstrng Productions, The Williamstown Theater Festival, Collegehumor.com and the Iron Mule Comedy Short Festival. She is the Ginjew Correspondent for Heeb Magazine. You can (and should) follow her on twitter @Megan_Sass.
Amy Lawless is the author of two books of poems: Noctis Licentia (Black Maze Books, 2008) and My Dead (Octopus Books, forthcoming). She was a 2011 New York Foundation for the Arts fellow in poetry. She lives in New York City and teaches creative writing at Rutgers University.
Gili Malinsky is a writer in NYC covering folk and DJs and currently Chromeo, which she is so psyched about (whoa). When book reporting, she veers toward the rock memoir as, let’s be honest, rockers have the deepest of knowledge to bestow on the lesser population that is us, the lesser population. Just kidding. They do say ridiculous things, though, those rockers. She’s written for the New York Times and most recently the Village Voice and Refinery29.
