the restless legs reading series
A reading series for the wanderlust stricken, the Restless Legs gatherings bring travelers, travel writers, and the people who love them together for an evening of sharing tales from the road, gossiping, and general debauchery. Tony Perrottet, Ayun Halliday, Rolf Potts, Mary Morris, Jason Wilson, Tony Hiss, Elisabeth Eaves, Thomas Swick, Andrew McCarthy, David Grann, Patrick Symmes, Carl Hoffman, Franz Wisner, and Phillip Lopate have all read.
Broome and Allen Sts. on the Lower East Side of New York City.
Please join us for a very special reading on Monday, April 15. Two of the founders of Weekday Wanderlust, a monthly travel-themed reading series in San Francisco, will be gracing the Syndromium at Lolita Bar. It's Weekday Wanderlust East, folks. And we're starting at an earlier time--6:30pm--because Lolita Bar has mysteriously shut the downstairs room, so we're on the ground floor and things can get a bit...how you say?... uncivilized up there as the night goes on.
