A Wendy's Subway Wrap-Up

Our stages may be dark, but there's still plenty going on here in Fort Greene. The Wendy's Subway Reading Room, for instance, remains on display through this coming Sunday, January 28 and is FREE and open to the public all weekend from 12—5pm. The space, located in the BAM Fisher Lower Lobby at 321 Ashland Place, features literature selected by international, independent, and artist-run libraries, as well as a collection of books selected by last season's Next Wave Festival performers and visual artists. Below, we highlight some of our favorite pieces from the visual and performing artist-curated reading lists. For highlights from donating libraries, be sure to peruse the #WSxBAM hashtag on Instagram.
