The Bushwick Book Club now has several branches all over the world, including Portland, LA, Seattle, Malmo, Sweden, Santa Barbara, New Orleans and Toronto, Canada. The Bushwick Book Club Podcast was launched this year.

The New York show will feature performances by BBC Founder, Susan Hwang, Jessie Kilguss, Charlie Nieland, Juliet Garrett, Terry Radigan, Casey Holford, Timothy Dark, Joanna Kelly, Storm Garner, Jennifer Devore and Earl Maneein.
