Lit Up Programs: Fun Events with Fellow Literary Fans
We’ve met so many cool people at events like The Lit Up Ball, Late Night Recess, Books on Tap and more – but, you don’t have to take our word for it!
Meet Kevin C., Lit Up Fan Since 2014
What Lit Up Events have you attended?
My first Lit Up event was Commuter Book Club back in 2014. I found out about it via Twitter and I’ve been coming back ever since. I’ve also attended multiple Shut Up and Write sessions, Drop Everything and Read!, Harry Potter & Star Wars Trivia, the 2nd annual Lit Up Ball, and I participated in Summer Reading for adults.
What is your favorite memory at a Lit Up Program?
There are so many good memories from all the different events, I don’t know if it’s fair to pick one. Commuter Book club was my first ever Lit Up event so it holds a special place in my memories. I love our discussions and I’ve grown fond of all of the people I’ve met. I guess if I had to pick a favorite memory, it would be last year’s Lit Up Ball. I went with a big group of friends. We all went to the thrift store together to pick out costumes and we just had a good, fun, silly time at the ball.
What is your favorite book?
My favorite “book” of all time would have to be the collective Harry Potter series. Harry Potter was what got me interested in reading. Harry Potter excluded, my favorite book is “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd. My favorite Commuter Book Club book is “The Cuckoo’s Calling” by Robert Galbraith.
