Rob SpillmanMichele Filgate, and Charlotte A. Lieberman will be taking the Pete's Candy Store stage on Tuesday, January 16th!

The Rally continues its new season with three leading literary warriors of the resistance. Come see our terrific slate of readers perform, and offer them your questions, comments, and reactions. We're the heart of a march in the body of a reading series — it’s a whole new helping of overtly political discourse.

Pete's Candy Store is located at 709 Lorimer Street in Williamsburg. Closest trains are the L/G at Lorimer/Metropolitan.
