About Us

Based in Northern Manhattan, the Sunday Best Reading Series hosts vibrant and evocative spoken-word performances by fiction writers, poets, dramatists, and memoir writers.  Events are held one Sunday per month in The Lounge at Hudson View Gardens, one of the oldest co-op communities in Washington Heights. The series is sponsored by the Spoken Arts Group of Hudson View Gardens under the aegis of the co-op’s Community Affairs Committee.

All events start at 4PM unless otherwise specified.  A suggested contribution of $7 covers admission to the event, snacks and drinks, and attendance at an after-reception to meet the writers.

Since the inauguration of the series in 2005, an impressive array of writers–from the widely published to the newly emergent–have read their work in The Lounge.  As part of its mission to broaden and deepen the influence of the literary arts in Northern Manhattan, Sunday Best has featured a number of local writers from the Washington Heights and Inwood communities.

The Lounge at Hudson View Gardens is located at 116 Pinehurst Avenue (at West 183rd Street).  The closest subway stop is at the 181st Street station on the A line (use the 184th Street exit).  The Lounge is also convenient to the 1 train (181st Street), and the M98 and M4 buses.

  1. What a great program for our neighborhood. I’d love to help you promote the events on our community calendar — just add me to your e-mail list!

    • Hi Steve, thank for your interest in what we do. I have added you to the e-mail list to receive listings for the Sunday Best Reading Series. These listings are short items suitable for an events calendar. Let me know if you’d like to get the longer e-blast with more information. Again, so appreciate your help!
