Celebrate Five Years of LIC Reading Series With Us
Join Our Livestream Event on The Virtual Book Channel
Founded in April 2015, the LIC Reading Series brings three writers to LIC Bar in Long Island City, Queens, New York, every month, for stories of Queens, readings, and a lively panel discussion.
This is an edited recording of a Literary Hub Virtual Book Channel live online event on May 2, 2020, hosted by LIC Reading Series founder Catherine LaSota. Buy the books of LIC Reading Series alumni directly from our partner the Astoria Bookshop, or through their storefront on bookshop.org, where you can find a full list of alumni books.
