The New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series provides performances from some of the best writers in science fiction, fantasy, speculative fiction, etc. The series usually takes place the first Tuesday of every month, but maintains flexibility in time and space, so be sure to stay in touch through the mailing list, the Web, and Facebook.
As always, the Cafe will see to your wining, dining and other worldly needs; and the Jenna freebie table will offer books and goodies, as will the raffle for any who donate.
