THE ELECTION: LET'S GATHER

All of us at Skylight and LARB are reeling. We’re furious. We’re saddened. And we’re more determined than ever to fight the good fight to protect voices, to defend the power of art, and to disseminate the widest possible array of what can be thought and written, mobilized and empowered, in reaction to this moment.

In that light, we are inviting writers, artists, readers, critics, and others to gather tonight, November 14 at Skylight Books at 7:30 PM. We will have featured readers Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Kate Berlant, Amelia Morris, Emma Koenig, Ethan Kuperberg, Dinah Lenney, Michelle Latiolais, Justin Torres, Michelle Tea, Aimee Bender, MG Lord, Rubén Martínez, Zinzi Clemmons, Julian Smith-Newman, Evan Kindley, and so much more!

Skylight will arrange books germane to this political moment. They will also have compiled a list of organizations, local and otherwise, that need our help and support. LARB has invited a handful of writers to read and we will continue to announce them all weekend. 

Perhaps most importantly, we invite you to read a work of your own or by someone you admire, for 5 minutes or so. Bring your own writing. Bring a poem or an essay or any piece of writing that has meant something to you these past few days. Bring your friends. Bring anyone who might want to attend. Or just bring yourself. Come to read or come to listen.

We will be there, in solidarity,

LARB and Skylight
