Independent bookstore Little City Books will host its 2nd Annual Hoboken Literary Weekend from Apr. 3 to Apr. 5. The event will feature several award-winning authors, artists, performers and journalists at Little City Books, as well as partner venues throughout Hoboken.

Apr. 3
New Yorker writer Patty Marx and New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast will discuss their new book, You Can Only Be Mad At Me For One Thing At a Time: Rules for Couples. The two have been playing sold-out events across the country, and their talk will include live music, refreshments, cartoons and a signed copy of the book.

Apr. 4
Obie-winning theater group Elevator Repair Service will perform at Little City Books. The ensemble’s production of Gatz (a word-for-word retelling of the novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald) won multiple awards and was called “the most remarkable achievement in theater of the decade” by New York Times critic Ben Brantley. At this year’s Hoboken Literary Weekend, they will workshop a new play, Baldwin and Buckley at Cambridge, a verbatim account of the 1965 debate between author James Baldwin and William F. Buckley at Cambridge University on the topic “The American Dream is at the Expense of the American Negro.” Included in the event is a conversation with the director and actors.

Apr. 5
The bookstore will host celebrated painter, writer and set designer Maira Kalman. Kalman will talk about her new book, an illustrated edition of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein. The book depicts life in Paris in the 1920s, and New Yorker writer and former Paris Correspondent, Adam Gopnik, will be on hand to discuss the Parisian literary and social scene at the time of the book’s writing. Tickets to the event include a glass of wine and a signed copy of the book, and a short film will also be shown.
