“Thrown together”: A NY fundraiser for tsunami relief!

My friend David Wallis runs Featurewell, an amazing service that syndicates high-quality magazine journalism. He also edited Killed, a terrific anthology of “Great Journalism Too Hot To Print” — stories so politically explosive their editors opted not to run them.

David’s in touch with tons of excellent writers, so he’s organizing “Thrown Together”, a literary reading to raise money for tsunami relief. If you’re in New York on Jan. 23, here are the details:


A reading to benefit Tsunami survivors


121 W. 10th Street

New York City

Phone: (212) 255-3333

Sunday January 23, 6-9 PM

Complimentary Hors d’ouevres/Cash Bar/$15 at the door

The reading will include Adam Goodheart (a founding editor of Civilization), Ayun Halliday (author of No Touch Monkey: And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late), Suketu Mehta (Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found), Bob Morris (who writes the Age of Dissonance column for the New York Times Sunday Styles), Daniel Asa Rose (Hiding Places: A Father and His Sons Retrace Their Family’s Escape from the Holocaust).

All funds will go to Oxfam’s Asia Earthquake Fund and Heifer International’s Tsunami Rebuilding Efforts. Heifer rocks; it was my favorite charity to donate to in 2004.
