On Saturday, June 9th at 4:00 PM running through to Sunday, June 10th at 4:00 PM at Brooklyn Public Library Grand Army Plaza, there will be a twenty-four hour read in to benefit the Brooklyn Public Library system, which is facing another array of horrific budget cuts. Among the many, many worthwhile readers and notable material, at 10:00 AM on Sunday, there will be a reading/performance of Dr. Seuss's immortal Green Eggs and Ham, featuring a professional actress and me. I hope to hold up my end, but I can certainly guarantee the quality of my fellow reader and, of course, the unassailable material. And that's to say nothing of the cause itself. If you are in the area, please stop by, if not for Green Eggs and Ham, then whenever is convenient. It runs for a whole twenty-four hours, after all.
