Every month, YA authors descend upon a secret location in New York City and perform an ancient ritual known as “Reading from their New Works.” It is often spoken of in hushed tones, and even in tones that aren’t all that hushed.
Below, I have — at great personal risk — reproduced the reading schedule for the next several months. And that secret location? Turns out it’s not so secret after all: You can encounter all of these great authors at the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library, located at 425 6th Ave (at 10th St.). Each night’s event runs from 6-7:30 pm.
If I’m in town, I always make sure to attend — join me!
