Upcoming Events


We're excited to announce a new event series in partnership with WNYC called I Am America this spring. We're presenting a series of conversations 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.  


First up is our event Violent Streets/Warring Hearts on March 29th with Lee Child, Philip Gourevitch and Walter Mosley with Jonathan Santlofer moderating. Find out more and purchase tickets



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 (October 2018 - June 2019), please contact Noreen Tomassi (noreen@centerforfiction.org). We'll see you in Brooklyn!
