Books Through Bars is out of money, so we’re playing cheap/fun/awesome Bingo to pay for postage and keep sending packages full of books to folks incarcerated in America’s broken prison system.

It’s free to get in, cheap ($1!) to play, and we’ll have beer from the Brooklyn Brewery for sale.  Plus you’ll be playing for totally rad prizes from places like:

NY Adorned Tattoo Shop, Bluestockings Bookstore, Le Poisson Rouge, St. Marks Bookshop, NYC Hall of Science, the Angelika, IFC Film Center, the Beehive Collective and much more.

Dope beats from DJ No Flag, color commentary from the loudest nun you know – basically, you should be there:

Books Through Bars Bingo
ABC No Rio (156 Rivington St), Friday Nov. 6th at 8pm.
