Kidlit Drink Night ALERT: Change In Venue

Faces and Names has betrayed us by having the sheer gall to take a reservation in their backroom before we were able to give them a call.  Shoot.  So we’re now having the soiree at Bar Nine.  That way, even if we don’t get their back room, there’s plenty of space to hang out in general.

What:  Kidlit Drink Night – A time when anyone who wants to talk about children’s books is invited to imbibe and talk at length on a variety of tasty topics.  Teacher, librarians, editors, marketing types, booksellers, authors, illustrators, parents, and enthusiasts of every stripe are welcome.

When:  Monday, November 17th.  At 6:30.

Where:  Bar Nine a.k.a. Hell’s Kitchen (sorry, Laura!)
