Brookline Booksmith has been thanking our lucky stars every single day
since 1961. We are the luckiest store in the world, and the reason why
is right there in our name. Brookline is filled with readers, with good
neighbors, with families and students and teachers and the list just
goes on and on. We couldn't be who we are without all of you, so believe
me when I say, on behalf of our entire staff, present and past: THANK
YOU! Now go be with your family, whatever that word means for

Called by The Weekly Dig "Accessible, hilarious, and not too haughty," The Literary Roast is
an irreverent variety show dedicated to knocking famous authors down a
peg with burlesque, drag, words, and music! Hosted by Wes Hazard, one
of The Boston Globe's "Five Comedians to Watch," this edition
has assembled a talent-studded crew guaranteed to bring you the very
finest snark after dark. Cecilia Tan (erotica author and founder of
Circlet Press) will be performing an epic take-down of J.K. Rowling;
Eileen Myles (author of Chelsea Girls) will be lampooning Dylan
Thomas; and Hadron Gospel Hour, winner of The Parsec Award, will be
staging a live radio drama with their own wry take on War of the Worlds.
Add in the sultry vocal stylings of 3rian King, drag by Complete
Destruction, and burlesque by Allix Mortis, Johnny Blazes, and more, and
you have an evening that redefines "bookish"! At Oberon in Harvard
Square on Thursday, December 18 at 8pm. Get your tickets here!
