The Half King hosts about 50 literary events a year.

Our weekly Monday Reading Series is a Chelsea institution.

Our semi-regular Magazine Night has brought in writers and editors from some of the most prominent publications on the planet. 

Reading events are made possible thanks to Brian Garrick, the administrator of all things literary at the Half King.

Please visit our Calendar for a complete listing of future events.

Visit our own Amazon Store to purchase books and films from the Half King's owners and from authors who have visited the Half King.

And listen to some past readings at our Podcast

The Half King on Facebook

Books sold at readings are brought to us by Posman Books.
