Got plans this Friday? Now you do. Join me at the Strand for a Halloween-themed costume party and book swap, co-hosted by CoverSpy. Bring up to three used or new books to swap with your fellow party-goers, and dress up like your favorite literary character or writer. I’ve provided some costume ideas for you above. I’ll be there to draw your portrait, so make sure you look literary.
RSVP on Facebook, and start brushing off that T.C. Boyle wig now.
