Enclave @ Club Cumming presents: Patrick Ryan, Tom Cardamone, Eric Sasson, Kyle Dacuyan

ENCLAVE READING SERIES springs back into action with its 2019 season with FULL FRONTAL LOBES, an evening of insidious intellect. Four inimitable authors will take the CLUB CUMMING stage to read form their works. Three of our favorite novelists: PATRICK RYAN, TOM CARDAMONE, and ERIC SASSON will be joined by one of our favorite poets, KYLE DACUYAN.

It all happens at Club Cumming, where the lights will be down low, the drinks are happy hour prices, and the people are whip-smart and pretty.
