See you all out tonight at Friends With Benefits tonight at Bruar Falls (245 Grand Street in Williamsburg). We have a stellar lineup for you to check out, all for the recommended price of a donated book that will go to our friends at Books Through Bars.

Franz Nicolay (of The Hold Steady)
Leni Zumas (Author, Farewell Navigator)
Vincent Cacchione (Soft Black)
Jesse Sposato (Sadiemagazine.com)
Things get going around eight.
A note from Books Through Bars:
We are always looking for new books and used books in good condition on the following:
- African-American history, especially 20th century
- Native American history
- Latin American history
- Radical politics
- Social sciences and psychology
- Dictionaries, thesauruses, and Spanish-English dictionaries
- Learning world languages
- How-to (drawing, chess, sign language…)
- Mayan and Aztec history
- Memoirs and fiction by people of color
- Poetry anthologies
With few exceptions, we want only paperbacks since most prisons do not accept hardcover books, and they are expensive to mail.
We do not take: religious books, including Bibles; legal books (except legal dictionaries); old magazines (besides National Geographic); white supremacist literature or anything advocating racial animosity, sexism or homophobia; business books; encyclopedias; mass market fiction (such as Danielle Steele and Stephen King).
