Queens Chronicle piece by Anna Gustafson
TimesLedger piece by Kori Tuitt
From the Queens Chronicle piece:
The reading is a reminder that Queens is a contender in the literary world, writers said. An increasing number of authors are choosing to reside in Queens, and there are an increasing number of literary readings, in a variety of languages, especially in places like Jackson Heights, Sunnyside and Astoria. And, as [Nicole] Steinberg and [Nicole] Cooley point out, it’s hard to beat this borough when it comes to diversity in what sustains authors — food and, more importantly, language.
Thanks so much to Anna and Kori for this great press!
