The 2009-2010 season of the Sunday Best Reading Series has come to a close, but that has not stopped Sunday Best staffers from remaining active on the literary scene.

On May 7,2010, Sunday Best curator Patricia Eakins read her work at KGB Bar in the East Village along with distinguished writers Amy Holman and Janice Eidus.   The event, entitled “FIZZ: The Women Speak,” was hosted by Susan Tepper, who recently appeared as a panelist and reader at Sunday Best’s season-closing event, “New Books from Small Presses.”  Patricia read a short story from her first book “The Hungry Girls and Other Stories” and an excerpt from her novel “The Marvelous Adventures of Pierre Baptiste” for which she won the New York University Press Prize for Fiction.  Patricia closed her performance with a spirited, provocative reading from “What Remains,” excerpts of text and song lyrics that she composed for “Portrait (with horse and others),” a theater production staged by Collision Theory at HERE Arts Center in Soho.  “What Remains” appeared in the Fall 2009  issue of the literary journal Fiction International, “The Artist in Wartime.”

In addition, official Sunday Best photographer Bonnie Walker read an excerpt from her memoir-in-progress at Above the Bridge on April 26.  Above the Bridge is  a semi-monthly writer’s cafe held at the Red Room in Washington Heights which showcases work by established and emerging writers living in Northern Manhattan.
