The Queens College Evening Readings Series was founded in 1976 by Queens College Professor Joseph Cuomo and has featured award-winning authors who visit our campus to do a reading and participate in a moderated discussion and Q&A with the audience. During the last 40+ years we have featured: Arthur Miller, Doris Lessing, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Edward Albee, E.L Doctorow, Colum McCann, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Jhumpa Lahiri, John Cheever, Mona Simpson, Zadie Smith, Susan Sontag, Jonathan Safran Foer, Junot Diaz, and Tom Wolfe, among many other prominent authors. The series has taken place at our beautiful LeFrak Concert Hall and is open to the college community and the general public.
