We invite you to be a part of the 2017 READ & FEED Festival of Literature and Food to take place Sunday, July 23rd, at Basilica Hudson in Hudson, NY. This year will feature a special focus on John Ashbery’s 90th birthday (a Hudson, NY resident). The Festival will take place during the day from noon – 5PM, making it an easy day-trip from NYC and various locations in Massachusetts, Vermont and Connecticut. This year, the main “Festival Stage” will also be in the main space—featuring a complete reading of Ashbery’s Girls on the Run by an all-star set of readers and a variety of other exceptional happenings—along with venders (that’s the space, above). Additionally, the audience ticket prices have been reduced and now include discounts for seniors/students as well (to $15 — $10 senior/student). We’re going to have a “Citizen’s Soup Kitchen” featuring nouvelle Indian cuisine for cheap and plenty of other food offerings, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs cooking up greens and salmon cakes while talking poetry, “Temporary Canada” (become a Canadian citizen for the day!) and lots more.
