As part of today's first World Book Night US event, Anna Quindlen, World Book Night honorary national chairperson, will welcome Manhattan volunteer book givers to a celebration at Barnes & Noble's Union Square store from 7 to 8. Also on hand will be author H.G. (Buzz) Bissinger, Lenny Kaye (guitarist for WBN author Patti Smith), and others. Tickets for the Broadways shows “Seminar” and “Clybourne Park” will be raffled off, along with some signed Patti Smith books. There will also be a special presentation of books to a NYC high school. Attendees can meet the volunteers and hear the stories of where they distributed their books. Quindlen and Bissinger will be signing books as well.
