About this Event

Readers of Content!

We hope your summer has been a long, sun-kissed stretch of good work, beach weekends, advocacy, and frozen treats. It's been a minute since we got in touch, but don't worry, we've been busy behind the scenes!

As in past years, we've taken a summer break from the reading series and have been using the month to spend some time planning for the fall and the path of TOC for next year and beyond. Lots to share soon but let's just say we're really excited.

A big part of that excitement: our September reading! Frankly we kind of can't believe how magical this lineup is. Jamel Brinkley is joining us from way out in Oakland to read from his complex, powerful, and intimate NBA-Finalist collection of stories A LUCKY MAN; Helen Phillips is returning for her second TOC appearance with a hive's worth of late-summer buzz around her new novel -- a psychological thriller/speculative fiction exploration of motherhood -- THE NEED; and the legendary Eileen Myles will join to read from their much-anticipated, captivating and physical and rushing new collection of poems EVOLUTION. Pinch us - this is crazy.

Get tickets asap! This one's gonna fill up fast.

About the Tables of Contents reading series:

Tables of Contents Readings feature readings from each of our three authors, plus snacks inspired by each author's passages. Created and curated by Egg chef Evan Hanczor, each evening concludes with a wide-ranging discussion and Q&A between the authors and Evan. The $15 ticket covers admission, the textual snacks, and one complimentary drink!

Additional drinks will be available for purchase, and McNally Jackson will be in the house selling books as usual.

We keep these evenings intimate and they always fill up, so get your tickets early. Also please note that while we will do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, all snacks are predetermined and drawn from specific bits of text, so we may not be able to modify every course. Knowing in advance certainly helps, so give us a heads up.

Feel free to write us at contentables@gmail.com with any questions, and follow us on Instagram at @tables.of.contents and twitter at @tblsofcontents to keep up with the latest. If you do grab a ticket, we'll add you to our mailing list so you can keep up to date on future readings and events!

Hope to see you at the table.
