We're excited to announce a new event series in partnership with WNYC called I Am America. We're presenting a series of conversations this spring & summer at The Greene Space with writers and artists to explore what it means to be a part of these (sometimes) United States. We'll be joined by some of our most urgent voices tackling contemporary culture today including Roxane Gay, Terese Marie Mailhot, Angela Flournoy, and more. Stayed tuned for more info.  


Our first event of the season, Violent Streets/Warring Hearts, took place on March 29th with Lee Child, Philip Gourevitch and Walter Mosley with Jonathan Santlofer moderating. 



Thank you to all the authors and audiences who have joined us for events over the years at our 47th Street location. We're gearing up for our inaugural season in our amazing new building in Brooklyn and we aren't booking regular events for spring 2018. If you're interested in partnering with us for our first event season in Brooklyn (November 2018 - June 2019), please contact Noreen Tomassi (noreen@centerforfiction.org).


We'll see you in Brooklyn!
