"One of the smartest audiences I've ever encountered. More than a reading--a communal event."
-GARY SHTEYNGART, author of Absurdistan (Cocolalla Press, 2006) and The Russian Debutante's Handbook (Penguin Putnam 2002)
-MARK RUDMAN, editor of Pequod magazine, winner of The National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry, author of The Couple (Wesleyan University Press 2002).
“The vibe of the real world was everywhere present. The joyous presence of reality was palpable in the room. Here were people living life interested in hearing about life. And this is why we write: to connect.”
