Guernica Mag+Rally Reading Series: Hafizah Geter, Glynn Pogue, Sarah Madges


In collaboration with Guernica / A Magazine of Art and Politics, Hafizah Geter, Glynn Pogue, and Sarah Madges will be taking the Pete's Candy Store stage on Thursday, June 6th!

The Rally continues its season with Guernica Magazine presenting three leading literary warriors of the resistance. Come see our terrific slate of readers perform, and offer them your questions, comments, and reactions. We're the heart of a march in the body of a reading series—a whole new helping of overtly political discourse.

Pete's Candy Store is located at 709 Lorimer Street in Williamsburg. Closest trains are the L/G at Lorimer/Metropolitan.
