Lit Lite


"When Bad Books Happen to Good People" should be the other title to this weekly literary series where New York performers are invited to select and read from their favorite bad books. And it's open season on anyone who's written a bad book or blog for that matter.  Earlier this month, in keeping with the theme "Women's Problems," performers read excerpts from Rosie O'Donnell's free-verse poetry blog.

Flo_1 Flotilla DeBarge, everyone's favorite Star Jones clone was originally going to read "Swan", Naomi Campbell's book. But at the last minute they deciced Miss Campbell's book was not compelling enough so they opted for much "lighter" reading like "Uncle Tom's Cabin".  Miss DeBarge turns it out, reading the verse a-la Scarlett O'Hara.  Other noted authors are Ethan Hawke & Yvonne De Carlo, who played Lily Munster in the tv series,"The Munsters.

Next weeks book choice?  An Abercrombie & Fitch catalog. via the NYtimes

Lit Lite readings are usually staged at Elmo, but venues sometimes change so call ahead.
