eat, drink and be literary

I do not know how the eating and the drinking and the literary have been divided during the programme. It is clear that the last installment was the literary part. The speaker was Dinaw Mengestu, the Ethiopia-born writer.

He read from his last book and he talked about it while people were eating and drinking and staying sober. 

Dinaw Mengestu — who was featured at BAM’s Eat, Drink & Be Literary program on Wednesday — is an English professor at Georgetown University and Brooklyn College.
