We're back for a season of FOUR (up from our usual three) readings going from March until June! We thought last season's experiment featuring local literary organizations and projects happening in and around Philly worked out well, so we are going to keep it going for another season.

"The Swarthmore College project brings book artists to conduct workshops with resettled Syrians and Iraqis living in Philadelphia. Grounded in archival research and driven by questions of displacement and refuge, history and experience, this project explores art's capacity to build empathy and create a deeper sense of belonging."
Our readers will be:
We can't express enough how excited we are! We will, of course, be back at our beloved watering hole, The Monkey Club.
Hope to see you there!
