About the Lost & Found Show
Every third Thursday of the month, writer Daniel Guzman brings together authors, bloggers, comedians, and performers to Happy Ending (302 Broome Street, Lower East Side) to share fiction and nonfiction tales involving everyday objects and the secrets they reveal about us. From the sublime to the surprising, each show is as diverse and tempting as the contents of a lost and found box.
