GET LIT with Us!
Lit Crawl NYC has partnered with CLMP to bring Crawlers a little Hair of the Dog(ear) in between Lit Crawls. Introducing GET LIT, a monthly series of literary events. It’s not exactly a reading series, because we’ve never been exactly that. But it will bring smart, spirited and sexy book-related events to you each month when there is not a Crawl. Expect Literary Taboo, live translation, Boggle tournaments, and other edgy events curated by literary magazines, publishers, and organizations for book lovers just like you. Every month will bring something new, at a different venue around New York. Check out our events page to see what’s coming up!

To anyone and everyone who would rather jam to Virginia Woolf than a woofer. Who still fancies Hemingway the all-time bar-brawl champ or has, at some point, uttered the word “transcendental” in a social setting. To anyone who has ever snuck a flask into the library. This is your night.

The Lit Crawl is a madcap concept created by San Francisco’s literary festival, Litquake, back in 2006. It’s a bar crawl, with literature! The inaugural Lit Crawl NYC took place in September 2008 and was wildly popular, spurring its lit-loving, NY-loving crawlers to make it an annual event, growing, in true Lit Crawl tradition, with every year.
