A Boundless Anniversary!

20150108_193915

**SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!**

We are Boundless. Maybe you have heard of us, or maybe not. You might have read for us, or have been a part of our audience a time or two. But since our reading series started five years ago, we have quietly ushered in a seismic and vibrant literary scene across our borough. At our 5 Year Anniversary Reading on September 9, we will celebrate that history, and the distinct and elevating voices who made it possible. We’d love to see you there. This night is for you.

Friday, September 9th from 6:30-8:30pm
at Queens Council on the Arts
37-11 35th Ave (entrance on 37th St) in Astoria, Queens

READERS:
Jennifer Baker
Susana Case
Shakira Croce
Tim Fredrick
Leona Godin
Stephanie Laterza
Matthew Thorburn

MUSIC: Matt Gibbs, guitar.

CHEESE, WINE, & Boundless memories…

Facebook invite is HERE.

See you there!

A message from Aida

Almost five years ago I decided to begin a reading series in Queens. At the time I felt that my borough did not have much of a literary community and there weren’t many venues for emerging writers to read their work.

I can’t believe how much Boundless Tales has grown since then. Thank you to Audrey Dimola and Devin Doyle for helping me continue my (our) venture!

Next Thursday will be our last reading of the season before our two-month hiatus for the summer. We will be celebrating Boundless Tales’ five year anniversary at the Queens Council on the Arts in September!

Come out and listen to our talented writers next Thursday, June 9th at the Astoria Bookshop! It will be great to see familiar and new faces.

Our founder Aida Zilelian hosts on Thursday, June 9th from 7-8:30pm at the Astoria Bookshop. We’ll be featuring…

Lynne Bronstein
William Shunn
Mark de Silva
Elizabeth Onusko

Find out more about them HERE.

Don’t forget that we’ll be at the NYC Poetry Festival this July, too! Meet us at the Algonquin stage at 1:30pm on Sunday, July 31st to hear our features: Sydney Hartlove, Catherine Fletcher, and Andres Castro!

See you soon and thanks for all the support,

-The Boundless Tales Entourage
