THE BREAKUP ARTIST
On “Love Song,” hip-hop artist Jean Grae bemoans, “On his face, jeans, and sweaters, something’s fishy/And it’s not what he tells her, man—it’s what he don’t.” Ouch. Have a similar tale of woe? Tell Grae all about it when she guest hosts Just Working on My Breakup, an anti-Valentine’s Day gathering for aspiring authors, published novelists, and humble logophiles to tell stories of heartache, humiliation, and love gone awry. Tonight’s event at WORD bookstore in Greenpoint is a special installment of Just Working on My Novel, the bi-monthly open-mic and critique series for writers to share written works-in-progress before an audience of like-minded literati. Attendees are encouraged to bring liquor to keep spirits up or to drown out relationship sorrows as necessary.
