Meet our readers: Vanessa Golenia


Vanessa Golenia is a Southern California transplant who has often wondered how long it would take her to become a real New Yorker. Is it seven years? Ten years? One day she fell into the gutter of the G train, which automatically granted her true New Yorker status. Soon you might be able to read about this story and her other precarious experiences in New York as she's currently working on a collection of personal essays.

Vanessa also produces and hosts the NYC edition of Taboo Tales, a live storytelling show that believes the more we talk about how fucked up we are, the more normal we all feel.

Please join Vanessa and all our outstanding readers for Line Break #8, Saturday, June 3, 3:00 p.m. at Q.E.D. in Astoria. Tickets are only 7 bucks!
