Did you go to the prom? If the answer is yes, then chances are you could strike gold at the “Worst Prom Story” contest, part of the next literary matchmaking mixer on June 17 hosted by WORD, an excellent bookstore located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Workman’s own literary date-disaster historian Virginia Vitzthum, author of My Blind Date Went Blind! will be on hand to help pick a winner and join in the revelry at The Diamond Bar (43 Franklin Street). Come for the drink specials, the DJ, and the oh-so-attractive and intelligent members of WORD’s “Between the Covers” matchmaking board. And hey, if it doesn’t work out, you can cry on Virginia’s shoulder afterwards. After all, as Faulkner said, “Between grief and nothing I will take grief.”
To enter the contest, send your Worst Prom Story to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15th. (Subject line: PROM STORY).
Facebook RSVP suggested, but not required (and neither is your prom outfit). Come as you are!
