Two Excellent Upcoming Events

This Saturday, the Park Slope United Methodist Church at 6th Ave. & 8th St. in Brooklyn will hold its annual Hollyberry Craft Fair, featuring more than twenty-five vendors of gorgeous arts and crafts. I speak from experience when I say this is a terrific place to start your holiday shopping, or just to walk around and look longingly at beautiful things. There will also be a bake sale, a soup lunch, a quilt raffle, some used books for sale, and a silent auction; among the goods and services up for auction is an hour of my professional time, where I provide whatever form of editorial consultation would be most useful to the winner. (In years past I've written copy for a documentary, edited query letters, copyedited manuscript chapters, and discussed submissions strategies.) The opening bid is $40. The Hollyberry Fair is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 16.

And on Monday, Betsy and I will host the next Kidlit Drink Night, starting at 6:30 p.m. -- most likely at Faces & Names, at 159 W. 54th, but we have to confirm that tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

Update: Faces & Names was booked, so we will now be at Bar Nine, 807 9th Ave. between 53rd and 54th, still starting at 6:30. Happy Hour ends at 7, so come early!
