Another Way to Help out Red Hook


    Red Hook still needs help! You can show your support next Wednesday, Nov. 14, at a literary benefit to rebuild Red Hook. Kurt Andersen, writer and host of the Peabody-award-winning public radio show Studio 360, will host the event. Musicians Steve Earle and Stew; novelists Joseph O’Neill, Sam Lipsyte and Rivka Galchen; nonfiction luminaries Phillip Lopate, Chuck Klosterman, Philip Gourevitch, Meghan O’Rourke, Deborah Baker, and Robert Sullivan; and other special guests will present readings on the theme of recovery and rebuilding. All of the evening’s proceeds go to the nonprofits Red Hook Initiative and Restore Red Hook. Tickets are $50 and you can buy them here.
