SUNDAY BEST RETURNS! New Season Begins January 2011

Here’s some great news for writers and aficionados of the literary arts in Northern Manhattan and beyond.  After a hiatus of several months, the Sunday Best Reading Series is returning to Washington Heights with a season that will serve up a melange of the excellent fiction, creative nonfiction, dramatic writing, and poetry that audiences have come to expect from our events–with generous quantities of music, gardening, and environmental awareness added in for extra flavor.

The new season begins on January 9, 2011 with a program of composers and writers that will sample everything from musical theater and electronic music to spoken word performance and the poetry of Philip Levine and Allen Ginsberg.  Please see the list below for dates and preliminary details for the Sunday Best events scheduled for the winter and spring of 2011.  As in the past, all events will take place in The Lounge at Hudson View Gardens (116 Pinehurst Avenue at West 183rd Street) on a Sunday afternoon and will begin at 4:00 p.m.  The suggested donation (which covers the event itself as well as the after-reception and light refreshments) remains $7.
