The first session of Madison Square Reads is Thursday evening at 6:30pm  in Madison Square Park. It’s a free program put on by the Madison Square Park Conservancy and co-hosted by WNYC and Time Out New York.

Thursday, July 7, 6:30pm: Sam Lipsyte, The Ask, From Publisher’s Weekly: “Lipsyte’s pitch-black comedy takes aim at marriage, work, parenting, abject failure (the author’s signature soapbox) and a host of subjects you haven’t figured out how to feel bad about yet. This latest slice of mucked-up life follows Milo Burke, a washed-up painter living in Astoria, Queens, with his wife and three-year-old son, as he’s jerked in and out of employment at a mediocre university where Milo and his equally jaded cohorts solicit funding from the Asks, or those who financially support the art program.
