The CCNY MFA Reading Series is back at Word Up tonight at 6PM, with the theme “Problems with Authority,” featuring John Liam Shea (Cut and Run in the Bronx), Tony Chiarella, Austin Givens, Lisa Martens, Felice Neals, and Florangel Reyes. Open mic sign up starts at 5:30 PM.
As the organizers declare: “In light of the recent closing of the Guillermo Morales/Assata Shakur Student and Community Center, it is important that as writers we continue to challenge the status quo and maintain a sense of community at CCNY, for CCNY. The MFA Reading Series is an opportunity for students of the City College MFA program to read along with published faculty and alumni. The open mic is open to the community of Washington Heights, and everyone is invited to enjoy featured readers.”
