A gigantic thanks to everyone who turned out for our nineteenth 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. Emily Hockaday, Sherese Francis, and Kurt Olsson brought us stunning poetry, Michael Libling delighted us with an excerpt (and intertitles!) from his forthcoming debut novel, Hollywood North. And Julie Threlkeld took us on a fascinating journey through the early days of Sigmund Freud, the paradoxes of the Winchester Mystery House, and the perils of psychotherapy.

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for Saturday, July 7th, when we'll we back with our twentieth issue featuring Jenny Hatchadorian, Michelle Meier, Oscar Sanders, and David Mills.

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

Hi, everyone! As you plan for Line Break today, please remember two things:

1. Our show today is at 5:00 pm, not the normal time. Doors open at 4:30, so try to be early.

2. There is no N train service today in Astoria! You will need to transfer to an N shuttle bus at Queensboro Plaza, then ride that to the end of the line. We would recommend adding an additional 30 minutes to your expected travel time.

After winding its way through the neighborhood, the shuttle bus will drop you off a bit north of Ditmars Blvd., not right by the regular subway entrance. Walk south along 31st Street and turn right on 23rd Avenue. Q.E.D. is a little over two blocks away, on the south side of the street. Here's a neighborhood walking map:

See you this evening!

Line Break #19: Saturday, June 2, 2018, 5:00 p.m.

            
TRANSIT NOTE: Q.E.D. is usually a short trip from Manhattan on the N train to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd in Queens. However, planned construction will disrupt train service the weekend of June 2nd. Shuttle buses will run from Queensboro Plaza to Astoria–Ditmars Blvd. Please leave yourself plenty of extra time for travel, at least thirty minutes to be safe.

Just a reminder that Line Break, the eclectic monthly live literary magazine, returns this Saturday afternoon at fabulous Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens.

At every show, live-lit veteran William Shunn brings a wild assortment of writers together on one stage. Don't miss our terrific June 2 lineup, featuring:
