Dan Savage and Ben Mezrich in the Reading Room

This week the Bryant Park Reading sponsored by HSBC hosts two super star authors with two special Word for Word Author events.

Ben Mezrich at the Reading Room in July 2011

Did you love The Social Network or 21? Join us in the Reading Room with Ben Mezrich, the New York Times bestselling author of the books which inspired the movies as he discusses his latest work. Straight Flush follows the fortunes of a group of frat brothers who founded an online poker empire only to come under the scrutiny of the US. Department of Justice.

Want more insights from the man who created the Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign? In a special additional Author session on Thursday, Sex-advice columnist and activist Dan Savage offers his take on topics ranging from healthcare and gun control to marriage equality and parenting in his new book American Savage.

Remember you could win a copy of each of their books. The first person to arrive for the event after 12pm on both Wednesday and Thursday, find the Reading Room Coordinator and say the secret passcode will win. Reading Room is open weather permitting 11am to 7pm. Books available courtesy of publishers, while supplies last.

The passcode for Wednesday is "Straight Flush" and the passcode for Thursday is "It gets better".
