THE ENCLAVE VII: THE FESTIVAL OF ELSEWHERE
Saturday, October 27th 4-6 PM
Kenny’s Castaways, 157 Bleecker Street, 212-979-9762
“This summer the roses are blue; the wood is of glass. The earth, draped in its verdant cloak, makes as little impression upon me as a ghost. It is living and ceasing to live which are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.”
Know where this quote comes from? Come to Kenny’s on the 27th and find out. It’s a rare opportunity to hear some of the east coast’s most innovative writers on the cutting edge. Come. Be a part of the enclave.
