Founded in Brooklyn in 2009, the Bushwick Book Club meets every month and employs the talents of local songwriters and artists who plumb the depths of a chosen literary gem to create that rare and beautiful thing - a new song (or visual art, dance, film or snack). All songs are then performed at a live show. The Bushwick Book Club now has several branches all over the world, including Portland, LA, Seattle, Malmo, Sweden, Santa Barbara, New Orleans, and Toronto, Canada, with new chapters developing in Ireland and Wales. The Bushwick Book Club Podcast was launched last year.

The Mirror in the Woods show in response to YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE will feature a brief reading by the author and performances by BBC Founder, Susan Hwang, Jessie Kilguss, Charlie Nieland, Richard Alywn Fisher, Gates Callanan (visual art), Ellia Bisker, Jim Andralis, Katie Fricas (visual art), Krystal Hawes, John Brodeur, Henry Tenney, Ray Brown, Dawn Kang, Space Meow, Nicola Yvette (dance), Lisa Barnstone (film), and Sung Uni Lee (snacks).
