The Pigeon Pages NYC reading series nests monthly online via Zoom with McNally Jackson Books. This month, we are thrilled to host Melissa Broder, Megan Cummins, and Kat Y. Tang, hosted by Jiordan Castle.
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.
