Thanks for making Line Break #24 so compelling!

A gigantic thanks to everyone who turned out for the twenty-fourth regular episode of Line Break this past Saturday, at beautiful Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. You were a tiny crowd, perhaps due to the date change and the New York Marathon, but 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 and editor William Shunn kicked things off with "Stand Up," a tale of dark doings in a futuristic comedy club. Last-minute sub Stephanie Laterza shared poetry from her upcoming chapbook The Psyche Trials. Host Susana H. Case provided a visual feast with a presentation of poems from her new book, Erasure, Syria. Oscar Sanders performed spoken-word selections from his play Diplomacy, with Naqaash Dorrell on percussion and harmonica. And finally, the legendary Eleanor Lerman delighted us with selections from four decades of a life in poetry and letters.

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, please mark your calendar for Saturday, December 1st, when we'll we back with our twenty-fifth (and final?) issue, featuring David Mills, Joe Okonkwo, Emre Tetik, David Rothman, EXO Books 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 December! Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There is something amazing happening there literally every day.
