With August and our “away game” reading behind us, Between the Covers returns home to Happy Ending Lounge Friday, September 7th. And we’re ready to bring you another roster of erotic and romantic reads. Join host Lori Perkins as we bring searing romance to the mic with Suleihka Snyder and celebrate a decade of urban erotika with Mo Beasley. And our roster’s sure to grow as our event date approaches!

We’ve got prize packages filled with books, treats, and sundries. Just throw your favorite dirty word into our drawing and maybe you’ll score one of them!
This month (for starters):
Born and raised in the United States by traditional Indian parents, writer and editor Suleikha Snyder has always marched to the beat of her own dhol. Twenty-plus years after scribbling her first fanfic story, Suleikha now pursues her dream of being a romance writer. Her short stories and novellas are spicy, often LGBT-themed, and frequently peppered with bits of Hindi or Spanish. Expect both masala and masti! Variety is her spice of life and this month we welcome her reading from her new novella, Heart Murmurs.
We also welcome back poet, performer and storyteller Mo Beasley, creator of the celebrate monthly performance series UrbanErotika. Now in its second decade, UrbanErotika celebrates erotic love through poetry, spoken word, music, dance, and theatre – as expressed by New York City’s diverse cultures. Each performance is composed of four Suites of Eros, starting with the most soft and sensual and ending with the most wild and explicit.
We can’t wait to bring this month’s guest talent to our mic!
Doors open at 7:00 so come early and socialize. Reading gets underway at 8:00 pm. And we can now hang out later than our previous end time of 10:00. Which gives us more time to socialize and enjoy each other’s company.
So let’s celebrate the erotic word in all its many forms!
