Closing Bell: Literary Town Hall Coming to Queens Next Week


The Queens Council on the Arts is hosting the first ever Queens Literary Town Hall next Friday, October 18th. The event, curated by Queens-based artist Audrey Dimola, is described as “part performance, part soapbox, and part networking opportunity.” The idea is to provide a space for Queens-based writers to connect to each other, local literary organizations and reading series. Organizations like the Newtown Literary Journal, Astoria Bookshop and Enigma Bookstore are scheduled to appear. Here’s a great list of Queens literary resources, many of which will be represented at the Town Hall. Right now, the event is accepting people on a wait list basis — entry costs $5.
