amandastern-nytimes.jpgBefore Amanda Stern (left) closes down the Happy Ending reading series for the summer, she’s got one more great lineup planned for this evening, with musical guests One Ring Zero joining readers Eliza Griswold, Jean Thompson, and Alison Bechdel. Once that’s over, Stern will be heading out to Southampton for the weekend, but it’s a working getaway: Fashion collective LOLA New York is throwing a party at the Blue&Cream clothing boutique, which will start carrying her debut novel, The Long Haul, the first step in “an innovative platform to disseminate risk-taking literature to… Generation Y.” And after that, she’s off to Yaddo for a month (and, if everything works out, filing a dispatch or two for my literary blog, Beatrice).
