So anyway, Andre Dubus III will headline a reading from “Pushcart Prize XXXIX: Best of the Small Presses,” which is out this week. The reading happens on Friday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. — a bit of advance notice, this, for your scheduling convenience. The place? The Strand bookstore on Broadway at East 12th Street in Manhattan.

    An employee of D’Canela, a restaurant on Main Street, was punched in the face several times during a dispute with a patron early Sunday morning. The patron, a male, had allegedly entered the women’s bathroom and pushed a female out of it. That prompted the employee to step in, and punches followed. The patron was forced to leave the restaurant and told not to return. Police, who spoke to both men, reported that neither pressed charges.

  • Recycled Art Extravaganza

    The Parrish Art Museum’s annual fall festival on Sunday will be a recycled art extravaganza. The fun begins at 10:30 a.m., when Steven and William Ladd, whose exhibition “Mary Queen of the Universe” is at the museum through January, work with families to make scrolls from bits of discarded fabric.

    Bash the Trash will lead visitors in making musical instruments from recycled materials, or attendees can make woven artworks inspired by “Alan Shields: In Motion,” another museum exhibition.
