Our own Jason Diamond chats with bookstalker, and in the process talks about some upcoming events.
Jason Diamond is a true powerhouse in the NY lit scene. He founded culture site Vol. 1 Brooklyn, hosts its related reading series, works at Flavorpill as the New York deputy editor, and writes for pubs like The New York Times, The Paris Review, and The Rumpus. This past May, Jason used his handy distinction of knowing everyone to throw “The Mingle” with friend Ryan Chapman. This networking event was so epic and well-attended that one could barely squeeze in the door. Read on for more about Jason’s fave Vol. 1 events, what to keep an eye out for this summer, and whether writers are prone to trashing dressing rooms.
