Hundreds in Hudson

This year’s inaugural READ & FEED festival at Basilica Hudson drew crowds of literary (and culinary) enthusiasts to the converted foundry in Hudson, NY on Saturday, July 30, 2016 for an evening of panels, demonstrations, wine tastings, private readings, and a live broadcast John Cage marathon.
