Episode 222: Live With Authors Alex Segura and Radha Vatsal in Queens, N.Y.

On Sept. 14, Daniel Ford moderated The Queens Bookshop’s first-ever author event (!!!), held at Maple Grove Celebration Hall in Kew Gardens, N.Y., as part of 2017’s Brooklyn Book Festival.

The author panel included Alex Segura, best known for his Pete Fernandez Miami mystery novels, and Radha Vatsal, scribe of the historical fiction novels, A Front Page Affair and Murder Between the Lines. Alex and Radha had great insights into the craft of writing, a passionate crowd of readers asked thoughtful questions, and our hosts generously allowed Ford to read from his debut novel Sid Sanford Lives!

Episode 131: The Queens Bookshop

Today, we welcome two of founders of The Queens Bookshop Initiative, whose aim is to bring a second bookstore back to Queens, N.Y.

They did it! The group's Kickstarter campaign reached its $70,000 goal with time to spare! The fight isn't over yet, though, they still need your support. If you haven't done so already, donate before you listen. And then donate more after you listen!
