The Literary Chick site is a kaleidoscope of all things books, music, and art. We’re updating the ’60s Greenwich Village coffeehouse scene for the internet age. Whether it be reviews, interviews, pictures, or news, it’s here. I want this site to be inclusive and a hotbed of the new and old, the underground, the you-may-not-have-been-aware-of, and the I’ve-got-to-show-you-this. Contributions not only are welcome, they’re encouraged. If you’ve got a piece you’d like to share, a review you’d like to post, a picture of yourself with a book speaks to you, feel free to share it with us.
