Other Literary Events: Uptown Voices:NoMAA Literary Grantees, Tuesday, June 14 at 6:30 pm

The Sunday Best Reading Series is currently on season hiatus until September 2011.  But opportunities to hear and support literary artists in Northern Manhattan still abound this summer.  On Tuesday, June 14, Sunday Best curator Patricia Eakins will emcee “Uptown Voices: NoMAA Literary Grantees,” a literary reading featuring recipients of NoMAA Literary Grants for 2011.  Among the writers sharing their work will be Will MacAdams, Christine Toy Johnson, and Lola Koundakjian, all of whom took part in the Sunday Best NoMAA Benefit held in March.  Joining them will be Danielle Lazarin (who was originally slated to read for the Sunday Best Reading Series in March but was forced to withdraw due to early labor), Dina Piera Di Donato Salazar, and Amir Parsa.

The reading will start at 6:30 in The Cornerstone Center at 178 Bennett Avenue (nearest cross street is West 189th).  A reception will be held afterward to honor the writers. This event is part of the annual Uptown Arts Stroll, and admission is free!
