Happy New Year! Sending all NYC-based readers a shout out about OXHEART, an arts collaborative based in Brooklyn that has recently caught our attention. The folks at Oxheart are kicking off the new year with their new non-fiction reading series, “OXHEART Tells The Truth,” being held at Niagara (112 Avenue A, East Village) in NYC on January 6, 2014 at 8pm. It is a free event featuring Will Hermes, Andrea Bartz, Ben Kassoy, and J.E. Reich (we have the readers’ bios listed below). Get out and hear some good words in the midst of all this blistering wintry weather!
