POPSICKLE is a weekend-long megareading that unites Brooklyn’s literary curators for an event filled with readings, performances and screenings. The event brings together reading series, presses, and literary organizations from all over Brooklyn for a celebration of the wild variety of voices across the borough.
Among this year’s 40+ readers are Joshua Cohen, Oriana Leckert, Miles Klee, Rickey Laurentiis, Paige Taggart, Allyson Paty, Marina Blitshteyn, and many more. In addition to readings, the festival will feature musical performances by KATIEE (katiee.bandcamp.com) and Susan Hwang (of Bushwick Book Club), as well as a gallery of comic art curated by Jess Worby and a video program curated by Zane Van Dusen. The full schedule is up here: http://popsicklebrooklyn.com/schedule/
Some of the series and presses involved this year are Franklin Park, Atlas Review, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, Brooklyn Arts Press, Gemstones, No Tokens, Bushwick Review, Birdsong, Weird Sister, and more.
This is the sixth year of the volunteer-run and organized event, which is held in a different Brooklyn space each year.
