Basilica Hudson and Community for Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) have teamed up to present a new festival: READ & FEED. As its name suggests, READ & FEED combines food and literature. The inaugural mini-festival features panel discussions that bring together creatives of all sorts—writers, farmers, and chefs. Examples of the panel discussions include: “Two Best Friends and a Bottle of Wine,” where authors Lydia Davis and Lynne Tillman engage with each other (and the audience) over a bottle of wine from Hudson Wine Merchants, and “Food Farming and Spirituality,” with celebrity chef Zak Pelaccio, authors Marie Mutsuki Mockett and Rozanne Gold, and organic farmer Sarah Chase discussing the manifestation of spirituality in the culinary arts.

Cooking and mixology demonstrations will take place as well in addition to a marathon reading of John Cage’s Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse). Several noted readers will be in attendance—Bernadette Mayer, Stephin Merrit, Dan Hurlin, Joan Retallack, Erica Kaufman and many more.

In a special poetry event, guests have a poet or literary reader read a poem to them in a secluded room. Once done with the reading, the guests are given the poem to take home.

Attendees have the option to purchase meals, drinks, and food products from Chaseholm Farms, Raven & Boar, Hudson Standard, and other vendors. Magazines, books, and cookbooks will be available from many small press and literary magazine publishers, such as Europa Editions and Conjunctions.

READ & FEED will be held on Saturday, July 30 at 4pm. Portions of the festival will be broadcast on WGXC 90.7fm and online at wavefarm.org. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. For more information about READ & FEED visit Basilicahudson.org/read-feed.
