On Friday, October 20, 2017, at the Astoria Bookshop, four Queens writers presented a literary event entitled "How We Learn." The reading highlighted the forces of culture, immigration, and childhood that shaped their identities and their relationships with the world. The writers included QAF Award winners Catherine Kapphahn, Malcolm Chang (a QCA Artist Peer Circle alumnus), Nita Noveno, and Rene Vasicek, The event was moderated by Tim Fredrick, founding editor of the Newtown Literary Journal and QCA Artist Peer Circle alumnus, and was followed by a Q&A in which the writers shared their inspirations and creative process.
