Green-Eyed Over 826
I've spoken with envious tongue of Brooklyn's 826NYC in the past. Now 826NYC is promoting a series of benefits that many would kill to see. If any of you New Yorker types want to see Jon Stewart, John Hodgman, Dave Eggers, David Byrne, and Sarah Vowell TOGETHER (I'm hyperventilating here), check it out. Otherwise there are other options involving writers, comics, and musicians across the country in Chicago, LA, San Francisco, Seattle, and Ann Arbor.
All credit to bookshelves of doom for the link.
