Pete's Candy Store Reading Series

FREE - Every other Thursday at 7:30pm

Curated and hosted by Jillian Capewell and Brian Gresko

Over the course of 15 years, Pete's Reading Series has earned a reputation as Brooklyn's premier reading series, where today's literary icons and tomorrow's stars take the stage regularly.

The most intimate reading space in Brooklyn. Think of a fine pre-war dining car with an endless supply of booze.
— Gary Shetyngart - author, Little Failure and Super Sad True Love Story
Pete’s Candy Store Reading Series is by far the best series in Brooklyn, at the best bar. It’s the KGB of Brooklyn!
— Joanna Yas - Editor, Open City Magazine and Books
It has never been clear to me who Pete is, but there is no finer place to give - or hear - a reading in this city.
— Robert Polito - author, Savage Art
