Hot enough for ya? Duh! The Dog Days of Summer are here!

Throughout history, people marked the event in many ways. Brady's 1813 Clavis Calendraria referred to the period as an evil time "the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies." Back in Roman times, they used to sacrifice a brown dog to placate the anger of Sirius, The Dog Star, hoping to turn down the heat!

Thankfully, times have changed. A new tradition is being born this year, as Three Rooms Press celebrate the Dog Days of summer with stories and poems by and about pets.
Wait -- Pets write? You bet they do! Join us as we present stories by New York's finest dogs (and cats), read by their loving author friends.

Our featured lineup includes international best-selling novelist Jennifer Cody Epstein (The Gods of Heavenly Punishment, The Painter from Shanghai), Canadian horror fiction writer Susie Moloney (The Thirteen, A Dry Spell), award-winning playwright Cecilia Copeland (The Next Time, The Wicked Son), plus author and New York Times health and science writer Pam Belluck (Island Practice). We'll even have New York veterinarian and poetry lover Cary Nulton (MetVetNYC) on hand to discuss tips on how to help your pet stay healthy in the heat! Plus Three Rooms Press co-directors Peter Carlaftes and Kat (not Cat!) Georges will co-host the event.

It all goes down Friday, August 2 at 6 pm at Cornelia Street Cafe, 29 Cornelia Street (btwn W. 4th and Bleecker), 212-989-9319. Admission just $8 (includes a free drink!)
