Tomorrow evening will be my biggest planned event for New York! We will kick things off at 7PM with my friend, filmmaker David Kessler (he made my book trailer), who will be screening a short selection of scenes from his current film-in-progress, Pines. Our friends The Ruins of Friendship Orchestra will accompany David’s short film with a beautifully atmospheric, live score. This will be their first show in New York.
After the twenty-minute interlude of film and music, I will give a brief five-minute overview of my book, followed by an impromptu slideshow presentation about the making of Whitman Illuminated, during which audience members are invited to ask whatever questions they like. After this, I will be signing books.
The event will be taking place at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe (126 Crosby Street, just off Houston). Housing Works Cafe is a non-profit bookstore. All proceeds go towards their mission to fight AIDS and homelessness.
See you on Tuesday night!
