Yes, Between the Covers goes UPTOWN and DOWNTOWN!
Starting June 6th, you can find Between the Covers erotic reading series at People Kitchen, 163 Allen Street. The monthly series features best-selling authors the first Friday of every month at this location, as well as their signature Dirty Word Raffle for free books and prizes.
The readers at the first People’s Kitchen reading will be Lambda nominated Donna Minkowitz, author of Growing Up Golem: How I Survived my Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates, IPPY Award-winner D.L. King, reading from Her Wish is Your Command, 21 Erotic Fem Dom Stories, Sheela Lambert, editor of the newly published Best Bi Short Stories anthology and Ann Herendeen, best known for her erotic interpretation of Pride/Prejudice.
Between the Covers features a unique dirty word raffle where people are encouraged to a favorite dirty word on a piece of paper (with initials because dirty minds think alike). The June 6th reading will feature raffle prizes from hipsandcurves.com corsets (a $150 value), samples of Dude Wipes, Simply Slick Oil Based Lubricant and Uberlube Silicone Lubricant from MySecretLuxury.com, and books by the readers.
“Authors of erotica and erotic romance don’t often get the chance to read at the local bookstore or library, so we are pleased to offer an opportunity for them to mingle with their fans, “ said Lori Perkins, Publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books and an a erotica author herself. “And since Fifty Shades of Grey has sold 300 million copies world-wide, we know there are a lot of fans out there.”
Riverdale Avenue Books also hosts a Between the Covers reading at An Bael Bocht Café, near the Riverdale Avenue Books’ company’s headquarters, to entice book lovers located in Upper Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester, New Jersey and Connecticut to attend.
