Important Transit Note:  The N train will not be running in Astoria this weekend. Instead of taking the N to Ditmars Blvd, you’ll need to transfer to a shuttle bus at Queensboro Plaza. Take the N shuttle bus to the end of the line and walk to Q.E.D. from there. Leave yourself at least an extra 30 minutes.

Just a reminder that Line Break, the eclectic monthly live literary magazine, returns this Saturday afternoon in a special Permanent Break Edition 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 December 1 lineup, featuring:

* John C. Foster will be unable to appear due to unforeseen circumstances.

Over the course of nearly three years, 24 regular episodes, 4 special-edition field trips, and 88 different guests, the Line Break Reading Series has been my delight to host and produce.

Like all good things, however, it's time for Line Break to come to a close. Other projects are simmering on the back burner, and it's time to give them more attention.

But there's still one episode left to go! Please join us for the final Line Break this Saturday, December 1st, at 3:00 pm at Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. It'll be our biggest and best show ever.

Our amazing lineup will feature John Foster, Joe Okonkwo, David Mills, Emre Tetik, David Rothman, and EXO Books, not to mention an epic sci-fi poem by your host. Tickets are just $7. Don't miss it!
