The Bayside Council for the Arts will showcase readings from writers around the neighborhood Saturday.

Local scribes such as Lon Blais, Eva Hughes, Hannah Garson, David Bold, Faith Elliot, Ronald Hellman, Madeleine Kane, Brian Lloyd and Gregg Sullivan will put their talents on display for what a flier for the event is calling “an entirely new genre of literature”.

Lon Blais recently held performances of “The Boy on the Bureau,” a one-man-show he wrote and performed about his upbringing in Danvers, Mass., as the “white sheep” of his family, in Bayside and was well received by the community.

His performance was described by the Bayside Times’ theater writer Ron Hellman as “reminiscent of the narrative skills of a Spalding Gray.” Hellman also said “Blais held his audience’s rapt attention. He plans to take the play on the road.”

Bayside’s Literary Night on Bell starts at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 7 and runs until 9:30 p.m. with tickets costing $30 per person, $50 for couples and $20 for seniors

The Literary Night will be held at the vacant store space at 41-23 Bell Blvd. which the Bayside Council for the Arts is calling temporary HQ.

Reach reporter Mark Hallum by e-mail at or by phone at (718) 260–4564.
