St. Rocco’s welcomes you to our first in-person reading of the year! We are not quite ready to move indoors, so this reading will take place behind Urban Aftermath Books, with readers on the back porch.

Gather at 4:30pm to hang out or buy books. Reading begins at 5pm: The readers will be reading from the back porch. You can get to the back porch through the store until readers begin, or during intermission. During readings, walk around to Hudson Street to enter the parking lot, or wait for intermission. (Parking lot entrance is between 256 and 260 Hudson St.)
