A gigantic thanks to everyone who turned out for our sixteenth regular episode of Line Break this past Saturday, at beautiful Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. Just by showing up and giving us the gift of your attention, you helped make the afternoon bigger and better than it would have been without you.

Thanks as always to Q.E.D. for giving us the space and an opportunity to use it. And thanks especially to our amazing readers, who made it the fantastic show it turned out to be. Host William Shunn took us to a remote space station to accompany a young Luddite on his first day of work. Oscar Sanders shared fierce excerpts from his one-man show, Exposing Politics. Chandler Klang Smith brought us an intriguing wedding scene from her new novel The Sky Is Yours. Richard Jeffrey Newman serenaded us with provocative poetry from his book Words for What Those Men Have Done. And David Mack whisked us to the magical battlefields of WWII with an excerpt from his new novel The Midnight Front.

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for Saturday, March 3rd, when we'll we back with our seventeenth issue featuring Jennifer Marie Brissett, Nancy Hightower, Renee Mariotti, Jonathan Sumpter, and Rachel Voss.

So sign up for our mailing list and keep abreast of all the latest developments in the Line Break world. And finally, if you're interested in participating in a future Line Break, do send us a submission.

We look forward to seeing you again in March! Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There is something amazing happening there literally every day.
