Blogger and Smart Mom Louise Crawford emails to remind us (and posts about it over at Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn) that the next Brooklyn Reading Works is taking place on November 16. The featured authors are Elissa Schappell, Ilene Starger and Darcey Steinke. Elissa Schappell wrote Use Me, which was nominated for a Pen/Hemingway award. She is co-editor with Jenny Offill of The Friend Who Got Away and the forthcoming Money Changes Everything. She also writes the Hot Type column in Vanity Fair.

Ilene Starger is a poet whose work has appeared in Bayou, Oyez Review, Georgetown Review, and other mags. She was a finalist for the 2005 Ann Stanford Prize.

Darcey Steinke is the author of Suicide Blond (a New York Times notable book of the year), Up from the Water and Jesus Saves.

Brooklyn Reading Works--which is curated by Louise--takes place at the Old Stone House in JJ Byrne Park on Fifth Avenue between 3rd and 4th Street. The event starts at 8 PM. Admission is $5.00 includes some refreshments. Check it out.
