Thursday, May 3, 2018 @ Pete’s Candy Store 7:00pm-8:30pm
This May we are *pumped* to be teaming up with The Rally Reading Series over at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn! Part reading, part conversation, three incredible writers will speak to what being “In Opposition” can mean. Following the reading, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and take part in the conversation.
[Pete’s Candy Store is located at 709 Lorimer Street in Williamsburg. Closest trains are the L/G at Lorimer/Metropolitan.]
