A gigantic thanks to everyone who turned out for our seventeenth 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 incredible show it turned out to be. Host William Shunn invited us into the chatroom with Mötley Crüe's Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. Jonathan Sumpter took us on a harrowing tour of a remote, half-built hotel. Renee Mariotti shared an anatomy of an agonizing #MeToo moment. Rachel Voss shared her vivid poetry. Nancy Hightower took us backstage with the televangelists among whom she grew up. And Jennifer Marie Brissett had us reaching for our hankies with the gut-wrenching story of a very unusual execution.

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for our special upcoming Sunday edition on April 8, when we'll we back with our eighteenth issue featuring Justin Weinberger, Jackie Sherbow, Theresa DeLucci, and more.

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 April! Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There is something amazing happening there literally every day.
