Opium Magazine and PARKLIT present:  "“Battle of the Boroughs”"

The creators of the acclaimed and outrageous competitive reading series “Literary Death Match” make mayhem in the great outdoors this July in the Lower East Side. Born and bred in New York City, these writers are as complex, provocative and original as the city that’'s shaped them. Expect the unexpected and come ready to rumble -- this showdown will not be a spectator sport!
