Dead Rabbits Season Four: August Reading

Featuring Camonghne Felix, Jenn Baker, Barbara Browning, Gabe Habash, Ariel Fransisco, Jess Rizkallah, and more.

The Dead Rabbits Reading Series was founded in 2014 by Devin Kelly (Sarah Lawrence MFA ’15), Katie Longofono (Sarah Lawrence MFA ’14), and Katie Rainey (Sarah Lawrence MFA ’14) as a way of providing a place for the burgeoning and young New York City literary scene to exist and thrive in Upper Manhattan. It could also simply be the result of three lazy Harlemites not wanting to travel to Brooklyn to go hear people read. Either way, the Dead Rabbits Reading Series is here, and you want it.

Healix Collective Presents: "Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth"

Healix Collective returns to City Reliquary on July 27th for the second installation of our summer screening series with ALICE WALKER: BEAUTY IN TRUTH, joined by NYC poet Camonghne Felix for a special reading before the film!

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a feature documentary film which tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century.

Alice Walker made history as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her groundbreaking novel, The Color Purple, which has been transformed from a novel, to a Hollywood movie and latterly to a successfulBroadway musical. This universal story of triumph against all odds is not that different from Walker’s own story.

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth offers audiences a penetrating look at the life and art of an artist, a self-confessed renegade and human rights activist. In 2010, Yoko Ono honored Walker with the LennonOno Peace Award, for her ongoing humanitarian work.
