SPECIAL EVENT | Writers and Books "Get Lit" Pub Crawl 

It's no secret that some of history's greatest writers liked to drink. And though alcohol may have done more harm than good for writers like Hemmingway, Joyce, and Faulkner, a drink, in moderation, can complement good literature. Writers and Books is hosting a pub crawl, bringing literary fanatics to three Rochester bars for drink specials and readings by local writers. Joanna Scott, Kristen Gentry, Bill Capossere, Nate Pritts, Sejal Shah, and Jacob Rakovan will share excerpts from their writing at The Daily Refresher, Skylark Lounge, and RocBrew. All proceeds from the event will support adult scholarships for classes at Writers and Books.

The "Get Lit" pub crawl will take place Thursday, August 21, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., beginning at The Daily Refresher, 293 Alexander Street. The crawl is free, but attendees can pay $10 for access to drink specials. For more information visit
