WATCH: Live Readings by Kaveh Akbar, Danielle Evans, Melissa Febos, and More
An Evening with Barrelhouse and The Rumpus
Each December, The Rumpus partners with another organization to celebrate the holiday season. Usually, we gather in person in New York City. This past year, because of the pandemic, we came together virtually via Zoom.
We were especially eager to bid farewell to 2020—and, with help from our friends at Barrelhouse and Books Are Magic, we brought together a group of writers we knew would bring joy to the end of a very long, dark year. On Thursday, December 10th, we gathered for inspiring readings from and conversation with Kaveh Akbar, Cortney Lamar Charleston, Danielle Evans, Melissa Febos, Christopher Gonzalez, and Megan Stielstra. Marisa Siegel, editor-in-chief of The Rumpus, served as emcee and moderator.
