The Old Stone House is the new location for Brooklyn Reading Works, a monthly reading series curated by Louise G. Crawford. It is located on Fifth Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets. Map and directions here.
Sadly, Mary Warren's shop, Fou Le Chakra, closed on May 27th, the night after Marian Fontana's and Susan Karwoska's reading. "At least we went out with a bang," Mary says.
This afternoon, I ran into Kim Maier, executive director of the Old Stone House and we sealed the deal. "I've been looking for a reading series to have here," Kim said and we hugged. And I was so relieved to have a location for the June reading with Sophia Romero, Carlton Schade and Lauren Yaffe. But I also have a whole lot of writers lined up for the fall and I'm thrilled to have a new venue.
Thank you Kim Maier for letting Old Stone House become the new home of Brooklyn Reading Works. And thanks to everyone who packed (and I mean packed) Fou Le Chakra on Thursday night. Finally, thanks and love to Mary Warren for letting me use her cafe. It was fun while it lasted.
