A gigantic thanks to everyone who turned out for the twenty-third 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. Malcolm Chang took us inside the 1966 assassination of South African prime minister Hendrik Verwoerd. Joshua Tong shared poetry spanning the lines between English, Chinese and Singlish. Attorney Peter Bryce explicated a long line moral failings in decisions of the Supreme Court. Host William Shunn delivered a bit of poetry for social justice. Connor Coyne tantalized us with the opening from his brand-new novel, Urbantasm: The Hidden City. And finally, the inimitable David Lawson performed provocative excerpts from his new one-man show, Nazis and Me.

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for the special date of Sunday, November 4th, when we'll we back with our twenty-fourth issue, featuring Eleanor Lerman, Susana H. Case, Sarah Riccio, Oscar Sanders, 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 November! Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There is something amazing happening there literally every day.
