Binnacle to host two readings
On Saturday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m., four New York writers will read from their novels and short stories at Binnacle Books in Beacon: Alexandra Kleeman, author of the novel You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine and the short-story collection Intimations; Annie De Witt, author of White Nights in Split Town City and a forthcoming short-story collection, Closest Without Going Over; Rebecca Schiff, author of the collection The Bed Moved; and D. Foy, author of the novels Made to Break and Patricide.
On Sunday, Dec. 18 at 10 a.m., writer and illustrator Jennifer Varn will perform a song from My Day, A Long Distance Lullaby, a new children’s book that grew from Varn’s attempts to stay connected with her nieces and nephews. The event includes a craft, cupcakes and a chance to win a signed book and stuffed animal puppy.
Binnacle Books is located at 321 Main St. Both events are free. Call 845-838-6191 for more information.
