Summer Camp in Soho
Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
Air out your sleeping bag, put on your bug repellent and get ready for summer, with a camp-themed literary party to celebrate the launch of Jane Roper’s debut novel Eden Lake (Last Light Studio), a family drama set at a summer camp in Maine. Jane will be joined by Diana Spechler, author of Skinny (Harper Perennial), and Elissa Bassist, editor of Rumpus Women, Volume I, and of the Funny Women column on The Rumpus. Singer-songwriter Alastair Moock will also be on hand for a few campfire songs. And, yes, there will be s’mores.
