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,
