The Pigeon Pages NYC reading series nests monthly in Brooklyn, NYC or online via Zoom. We showcase a dynamic and diverse group of writers for a literary evening each month, and are proud to be a platform for emerging writers while also celebrating the successes of local authors.
Our readings are always free & open to the public.
