A new Queens College series produced by Kupferberg Center for the Arts, the Department of English, the Provost’s Office, and the Dean of the School of Arts and Humanities. Curated by QC professor and author Vanessa Perez-Rosario.

This series builds on the former Evening Readings program, which was founded in 1976 by Queens College Professor Joseph Cuomo and has featured award-winning authors on campus for readings and moderated discussion and Q&As with audiences. Past writers include 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.

Now, this series has moved online for the 2020-21 season, and will feature writers in conversation and readings, virtually, with hosts and our online community. Upcoming events will stream on KCA’s YouTube and Facebook pages and will include:
