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.

The authors and their books

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.
