I’m excited to be curating the January REZ Reading Series. I chose the theme of fantasy, and have put together a talented and diverse line-up of authors from the NYC-area.
The event is Thursday, January 9th 7:30 – 9:00 PM at Odradek’s Coffee House in Kew Gardens. It’s free and open to the public.
Here’s the list of readers, which is still in formation:
