Looking for something fun, lightweight, and intellectually stimulating to take to the beach? Don't miss the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses' Lit Mag Marathon Weekend, where you can load up on dozens of great magazines that will keep you occupied all summer long. Today, in honor of the New York Public Library's 100th anniversary, editors from such publications as A Public Space, Bomb, Conjunctions, The Literary Review, and Parnassuswill read their favorite selections from their very first issues. Then, on Sunday, bring your book bag to Housing Works Bookstore Café, where a huge selection of literary magazines will be on sale for the super low price of $2 per issue. Go crazy!
