DDDB Walkathon Week Event Reminder

You can never have too many reminders about Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn's Walkathon Week, the series of events leading up to their fundraising Walkathon on Saturday, Oct. 21. There are some way cool events going on this week, including reading by some prominent Brooklyn writers and, on Thursday, the opportunity to eat at number of restaurants that are donating part of the proceeds to DDDB.

So, here's the schedule for the rest of the week:

10/18: Wednesday Night is Literary Night II:
7:30 pm at Tillies - 248 DeKalb Ave, corner of Vanderbilt. 718-783-6140

Donation suggested.

The authors are Jhumpa Lahiri, Jennifer Egan, Susan Choi, Sheri Holman and Diana Son.

10/18: Wednesday Night is Movie Night II:
7:30 pm
Donation suggested.

Soda Bar - 629 Vanderbilt Ave., between Prospect Place and St Marks Avenue

This Land is Your Land with filmmakers. "A feature length, 82-minute, documentary film THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND is a startling and often hilarious exploration of the overwhelming corporate takeover of American life. Over the course of three years, the filmmakers traveled across the U.S., interviewing award-winning authors, historians, media commentators and ordinary citizens about the wide range of ways individuals and society at large experience this impact." DJ Motormouth performs after the film.
