It may be April Fool’s Day, but tonight’s literary matchmaking event is no joke. If you love spending your weekend in musty bookshops, expounding on the virtues of Proust, head over to Lit Crawl NYC: Geek Love, where the goal is to pair you up with your hip, brainy soulmate. Emma Straub (Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures) and Teddy Wayne (The Love Song of Jonny Valentine) host the night of drinks, literary trivia, and prizes, with many editors, publishers, and publicists of the event committee attending as well. So, even if you don’t find a date, you might find someone who wants to publish you.
