Embrace Your Inner Literary Nerd with the Deep Ellum Lit Hop

When did being called a reader become an insult? It made sense when we were kids because kids are supposed to act irrationally so they can learn how to behave when they presumably grow up. Now we have grown adults calling people readers the same way they’d describe some rich snob who turns his nose up at the rest of the world. We had a presidential candidate in 2012 who said on the campaign trail, “We need a leader, not a reader.”

If you don’t buy into the notion that being literate means you think you’re better than everyone, then proudly show off your love for books at 4 p.m. Saturday, June 3, at this year’s Deep Ellum Lit Hop, sponsored by Wordspace. Readings will be at Independent Kitchen, 2712 Main St.; Kettle Art, 2650 Main St.; Deep Vellum Books, 3000 Commerce St.; and Drugstore Cowboy, 2721 Main St.

Guests can walk the downtown streets to peruse the shelves for fun, news read and the perfect drinks with which to pair them. The Lit Hop schedule will also feature special events like a poetry showcase at Pandora’s Box and a Dallas fiction writers showcase at Kettle Art.
