One of the great advantages of living in New York City is that we can hear new ideas as they are being created, instead of having to wait years for those books to appear on bookstore shelves. First Mondays allows us to share accomplished writers' processes as they are happening and gives us an intimate insight into their new work in-progress, long before publication or performances. Join us every first Monday at McNally Jackson Williamsburg for a special opportunity to hear the future.
February's readers will be: Garance Franke-Ruta, Ron Goldberg, Mark Harrington, Dudley Saunders, K.M. Sohenlein, and Peter Staley. Moderated and organized by Sarah Schulman.
These readers were all members of ACT UP, NY, (The AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power,) and fought the government and pharmaceutical companies to transform the epi-center of the AIDS crisis. Today they will be reading books and articles, nonfiction and fiction, in-progress about that experience.
Please note that this event will start at 6:30 PM.
