Don’t believe in psychics? Perhaps you’ll change your mind after tonight’s book party for Heidi Julavits’s latest novel, The Vanishers, which concerns a talented young psychic whose mentor becomes jealous of her growing paranormal powers. However, the night isn’t all about fiction. Julavits, a co-founder of The Believer, will interview real-life New York psychic reverend Betsy Cohen about what it means to be a soothsayer in the 21st century. Our crystal ball tells us you’ll have a good time.
