Novelists Emily Maguire (Taming the Beast), Heather O’Neill (Lullabies for Little Criminals), and Sarah Hall (Haweswater) relax before the official kickoff to Harper Perennial’s “Lit Chick Invasion Tour” last night at the KGB Bar reading series. Perennial threw a pizza party before the reading began, inviting several New York bloggers and publishing types (including both GalleyCats, The Publishing Spot‘s Jason Boog, FSG publicist Ami Greko, Memoirville‘s Rachel Fershleiser and her boss at Smith Magazine, Larry Smith) to meet the authors and their publishing team. The trio will be reading again tonight at the Astor Place Barnes & Noble, then heading out to Cambridge, Ann Arbor, and San Francisco.
