On Wednesday, July 30th, three acclaimed crime writers Tom Bouman, Jay Caspian Kang and Adam Sternbergh will participate in a discussion of the present and the future of crime fiction. Contemporary crime fiction also attracts some of our most astute writers and readers, and much like fantasy and speculative fiction, it is experiencing serious critical and cultural attention. Join Housing Works as we discuss the present and the future of crime fiction with three writers innovating the genre all of whom have worn other hats as editors and critics.
We've all experienced that wonderful feeling when we are in the presence of people and places that somehow make us feel like we belong. As children, our parents provide a secure, loving environment.

If we can’t have Eliot Feld’s Ballet Tech back at the Joyce Theater, its former home, I guess we’ll have to settle for his Kids Dance, a program featuring forty or so ebullient students from Ballet Tech’s Public School for Dance. Settling, it turns out, was actually hardly needed. This was a thoroughly professional, vibrant show full of promise.
