This gratis night combines two of New Yorkers’ favorite things—literature and booze—into one 29-event multivenue fest in lower Manhattan. This season’s incarnation kicks off with a special edition of NPR quiz show Ask Me Another, featuring dirty trivia and host Ophira Eisenberg reading from her new memoir, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy (Professor Thom's; 6pm). Other highlights include “Ghost Stories with Lapham’s Quarterly” (Merchant’s House Museum; 6pm), a discussion of oceangoing lit labeled “Whales, Wenches & Winches” (Preserve24, 175–177 E Houston St between Allen and Essex Sts; 8:15pm)and lots more.
