Starting Saturday, June 11 at 5:00 P.M. and running to Sunday, June 12th at 5:00 P.M. is a twenty-four hour read-in to protest the massive funding cut to Brooklyn Public Library. The event, called "We Will Not Be Shushed," will be held at Brooklyn Public Library Central at 10 Grand Army Plaza. Something on the order of one hundred authors will be doing readings.
Incidentally, 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. on Sunday morning is devoted to children and young adult readings. Among the many worthwhile authors, I will be reading a selection from Those That Wake at 10:15 A.M. If you're in the area, please stop by at that or any time to lend support to this very worthy cause.
