Two-Volume Sets

SummerStage’s biggest readings are just days apart this year.

  1. 1. Jennifer Egan and Marisha Pessl

    July 26 at 7:30

    National Book Award nominee Egan reads from her 2006 novel The Keep; envy-inducing young novelist (and fellow New Yorker) Pessl follows with a selection of passages from her breakout Special Topics in Calamity Physics.

  2. 2. Amiri Baraka and Sonia Sanchez

    August 2 at 7:30

    If Amiri Baraka’s past is any indication (the cultural critic has proclaimed himself everything from a Marxist to an anti-Semite, and been dumped by both the military and New Jersey’s poet-laureate program), his reading should be full of surprises. And Sanchez, his friend and sometime collaborator, has received virtually every award in the field.
