PETE'S CANDY STORE READING SERIES

FREE - SECOND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH

Curated and hosted by Jillian Capewell and Brian Gresko

Over the course of 20 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
