Grantland Gang Set to Invade Skylight Books

To celebrate the arrival of the second issue of the Grantland Quarterly, Skylight Books in Los Feliz will host a quartet of the Web publication’s staffers for an April 9 reading and Q&A event. Attending Monday night will be Katie Baker, Rafe Bartholomew, Tom Bissell and Molly Lambert.

The publication is a combination of Web best-of and print exclusives. Lambert could be in for a fun time in particular, as her contribution to Issue #2 is all about the Kardashians.

Baker writes in the latest issue about female marathoners, Bartholomew profiles Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra while Bissell takes stock of Dead Island, the latest release from Techland. The issue retails for $25.

The event begins at 7:30pm. More info here.
