Dear MAI Founders,

24-Hour Marathon Reading
We’d also like to announce that Marina Abramovic Institute, in collaboration with Basilica Hudson, will host a 24-hour marathon reading beginning on November 23rd, 2013 at 2pm. The event will be held at Basilica Hudson, a 19th century factory-turned-event space, about one mile from the future Institute in Hudson, New York.
Over the course of 24 hours, participants will read the entirety of The City of Dreaming Books by Walter Moers. The fantastic tale follows Optimus Yanspinner on his quest to locate the mysterious writer of an unpublished manuscript in the literary metropolis of Bookholm. The novel promises to be accessible and captivating to children and adults alike.
See the Facebook event here. If you’d like to read or volunteer at this event, email email@example.com with subject line “READING.” We look forward to seeing you there!
