On Wednesday, July 12 at 7 pm, in conjunction with their Reading Room at Bard Graduate Center, Wendy’s Subway is pleased to present readings by Feliz Lucia Molina, Judah Rubin, and Danniel Schoonebeek. Readers will read new work, variously engaging with titles in the Reading Room collection and its guiding theme, “ritual and capital.”

Wendy’s Subway’s Reading Room at Bard Graduate Center promotes engagement with artists’ books, periodicals, and other publications selected for their relationship to the spring exhibitions and public programs.

Dorothy Parker American Gin sponsored by the New York Distilling Company will be served at this event.
