The crowd at Q.E.D. for Line Break #25 - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
A huge shoutout to everyone who turned out for the twenty-fifth and final episode of Line Break this past Saturday, at beautiful Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens. You were a big and enthusiastic audience, and 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. You made it a fitting sendoff for our little reading series.

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 such a fitting and festive sendoff. David Rothman took us inside a very unfortunate and hilarious job interview, leavened by anecdotes from a people who never were. Emre Tetik shared the lovely and somber story of a cat beloved by no one. Joe Okonkwo brought us into an argument over the implementation of a highly unusual marital innovation. The always amazing David Mills delivered powerful poetry in the voices of Lewis Latimer and Louis Armstrong. EXO Books delighted us with a visual feast from his new holiday release, Schmuck the Buck. And finally, host and editor William Shunn closed out the series in decidedly non-sentimental fashion with a rare performance of his sci-fi narrative poem, "Grand Motherfucker."

If you couldn't make it out on Saturday, we wish we could tell you there’s another show coming up soon. But there’s not! You missed out!

But who knows? We might do a one-off show or two sometime down the road, so please sign up for our mailing list and keep abreast of all the latest developments in the Line Break world. Maybe there will be another chance to see us.

Until then please check out all the terrific shows and events at Q.E.D. There’s something amazing happening there literally every day. Multiple times a day in fact.

Happy holidays, you grand motherfuckers!
