Coming up in Fall 2012, DEBUT LIT will host two showcases of new talent.

As part of Brooklyn Book Fest’s book end events, DEBUT LIT will host “New on Tap: a Showcase of Debut New York Authors.” The event will take place September 20 at Pacific Standard in Brooklyn.

Readers will include Greg Gerke (There’s Something Wrong with Sven), Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan (A Tiger In the Kitchen), Laren McClung (Between Here and Monkey Mountain), Hugh Sheehy (The Invisibles) and host Rebekah Anderson (Let the River Take It).

Then coming up on October 18, DEBUT LIT will be part of Lit Crawl Seattle, a literary extravaganza organized by DL’s Rebekah Anderson with more than 15 readings and performances throughout Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The crawl is part of City Arts Fest and kicks off the festival’s first full night of programming. The showcase includes local debut authors, Suzanne Morrison (Yoga Bitch), Nicole Hardy (Confessions of a Latter-Day Virgin), Lance Weller (Wilderness), Dan Coxon (Ka Mate: Travels in New Zealand), Jeff Bender (The Weight) and host Rebekah Anderson (Let the River Take It).
