Launched in March 2012, H.I.P. Lit is hosted by Erin Harris, Brittney Inman, & Kim Perel, in New York City. This is not your mother’s reading series. This is an event. Not only do we support emerging and celebrated literary voices, but we also like to throw an awesome party (like, with an aerialist, a short film, or a live band). We bring interesting people together to think, drink, eat, talk, dance, play, and some people smoke outside. Our past readers include: Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar, New York Times bestselling author Téa Obreht, and National Book Critics Circle award winner Joyce Johnson. For a full list of our talented readers check out our H.I.P. Readers page. Thanks for stopping by our Tumblr. Hope to see your face at one of our events!
