Music Bunk at #NBOLitfest

Public libraries can become performance spaces, right?! Our inaugural (virtual) edition features musical performances from Eastlands Library featuring Karun, Sanaipei Tande and Tetu Shani. This series was inspired by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts and staged at Eastlands Library. Our aim is to convert some of the physical events that we would host at these libraries into virtual experiences that can be enjoyed by all.
Go ahead and mark your calendar for 7th-9th October 2021, then head on to our website to see who's coming!

“Books and music. The root of the tree is the same but they are also two completely different roots. In music, we take what’s written in a book and we condense it to something very succinct”.
