The Bushwick Book Club takes humdrum book reading to a new level.”  The New York Times

Gathering the talents of local songwriters who plumb the depths of a chosen literary gem to create that rare and beautiful thing – a new song (or visual art, dance, film or snack)– we will gather together to perform these creations at the Green Note

Come join us to see the different artistic responses to Zoe Folbigg’s The Note, just the perfect book to get you in the mood for valentines, whilst nibble on some book inspired cookies, made with love!

Co-hosted by Georgina Jackson and Amanda Thorpe, the lineup includes author Zoe Folbigg, and songwriters: Julia Gray, Alastair Harper, Amanda Thorpe, Jenn Friedman and Oli Weatherly amongst others.

Bushwick Book Club shows have garnered praise from publications such as The New York Times,The New YorkerTime Out NY, and the Village Voice (which awarded us a Best of NYC award for “Best Literary-Musical Crossover” in 2009).
