The “One Story, One Borough” campaign hit the streets yesterday, as volunteers handed out thousands of free short stories.
The literary journal One Story outlined the special event: “From 7:30-9 am on Wednesday, September 8th, volunteers [handed out] out free copies of One Story at subway stations throughout Brooklyn, as part of the ‘One Story, One Borough’ campaign, in our ongoing effort to save the short story. Each issue will include an invite to a One Story reading by Brooklyn OS authors James Hannaham, Reif Larsen and Caedra Scott-Flaherty at noon at The Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 12th.”
The literary journal also recorded how fast the supply of free short stories ran out at each stop. The Carroll Street stop depleted their handouts first, followed by Clinton-Washington and Bedford Avenue. Eastern Parkway came in last. Everybody from cops to lawyers to bail bondsmen reportedly enjoyed the giveaway. (Image via)
