Shutting it down early to prep for tonight’s reading at The Half King down in Chelsea. For those with easy access to New York’s wondrous subway system, please swing by if the spirit moves you. The address is 505 W. 23rd Street (just west of 10th Avenue), and the festivities kick off at 7 p.m. sharp. We’ll be reading passages describing the horrors of Burmese leeches and Naga tiger-hunting rituals. Hope to see y’all there.
