Wall Street will be this month's theme. Angry you lost everything? Giddy with schadenfreude at the demise of bottle service and $3 million birthday parties? Or, maybe you just want to know what the $%&@#!%$ just happened to the American economy. Fear not, student of Sartre—explaining all of this and more in terms befitting an MFA (not MBA) will be Amit Chatwani, aka The Leveraged Sellout [interview here], author of Damn it Feels Good to Be a Banker; former hedge-funder, prizewinning memoirist, and author of The Heaven-Sent Leaf poetry anthology Katy Lederer [interview here]; and Daniel Gross [interview here], Slate.com's Moneybox columnist, senior editor at Newsweek, and author of Pop! Why Bubbles Are Great for the Economy.

The event will start at 8 pm at the Happy Ending Lounge, and is free.


Happy Ending Lounge (official site, CitySearch, MySpace)
302 Broome St.

J/M/Z/F to Delancey
