Attention, rock geeks: Get yourself over to the Housing Works bookstore for a reading from the 33 1/3 series of chapbooks about seminal records. (Previous highlight: “Doolittle,” a slender volume on the Pixies album courtesy of The New York Times’s own Ben Sisario.) The authors Kim Cooper, Amanda Petrusich and Andrew Hultkrans will explain their affection for the albums “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” (Neutral Milk Hotel), “Pink Moon” (Nick Drake) and “Forever Changes” (Love) — and why those albums should mean something to you, too. Hey, maybe you’ll even be moved to buy them.
