Bushwick Book Club is a unique, literature-themed event inviting musicians, artists, chefs and all readers to be inspired, create and engage with literature in new and deeper ways. Each event showcases new music, dance, art and culinary creations inspired by a chosen work of literature. Bushwick Book Club is the first literary/musical crossover event of its kind. From its origins in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick in 2009, the event has expanded to chapters in Seattle, WA; Los Angeles, CA; Santa Barbara, CA; New Orleans, LA and Malmo, Sweden, using everything from Flaubert to Nabakov to Dr. Seuss as fodder for new creations and performance.
Bushwick Book Club shows have garnered praise from publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, Time Out NY, and theVillage Voice (which awarded us a Best of NYC award for "Best Literary-Musical Crossover" in 2009), from blogs like Gothamist, GeekChicNYC, and NPR's Science Friday, and from an array of local podcasts and publications.
