>Book Tours Get Down and Dirty


Oftentimes writers create characters to air their dirty laundry and clean out their perverbial closets. This is nothing new, of course, but have you ever attended a book reading at a laundromat?
New York writer Emily Rubin has organized a series of readings called “Dirty Laundry: Loads of Prose,” at laundromats in New York.

“Just mixing laundry and writing seemed completely natural to me because truly in life and metaphorically as a writer, everyone has dirty laundry,” said the Brooklyn native who started the series last year.

I haven’t been to a laudromat in years, but I wouldn’t be opposed to throwing in a few loads while listening to the latest reading of a good author. I think that at the least, this puts a spin on traditional literary marketing.
