Welcome to rile* for the live reading of If Repeatedly Then Reception, with Bryana Fritz, Quinsy Gario and Stefan Govaart. If Repeatedly Then Reception reads texts repeatedly. More than one, it summons simultaneity and seeks a third sentence. Day one draws together a selection of texts by authors who wrote with devotion unto us the readers. Day two offers devotions the readers wrote themselves.

rile* reading groups

rile* is excited to announce a series of monthly online reading groups in 2021. Now more than ever we find it necessary to carve out spaces for exchange; spaces for being and thinking together. Many of us have found reading a vital companion throughout 2020's tumultuous turns, a lifeline perhaps, into worlds different from the ones we find ourselves stuck in. The last Wednesday of each month we invite you to join us at rile* to read together. No preparatory reading is required. We will gather around a text and an invited guest will guide us through the author's work; opening questions for us to delve into together.
