This week! Here we go!
- Tonight we welcome Emily Wells and The Portland Cello Project for our benefit concert series, Live From Home. WNYC thinks you should come; we’ll have tickets available at the door. $15, doors at 7:30PM.
- Tomorrow Dave Hill, Michael Kupperman (just added) and Rachel Dratch discuss being funny people who wrote books.
- Wednesday we celebrate the third issue of the “magazine for people who love books,” and one of Library Journal’s best literary magazines, The Coffin Factory, with contributors Justin Taylor, Lara Vapnyer, Ali Hosseini, and more.
- And Thursday our Best of New York series, Safe Space, is back with novelist Nicole Krauss and pianist Simone Dinnerstein. Tickets still available; this series is one of my favorite events here at the store, it’s a great chance to get a taste of classical music with brilliant young musicians and hear fascinating discussion of the artist life across genres. $12, doors at 6:30PM.
This week, we’ve got the closing night performance of A Weimar Flute, your last chance to see opera (and it’s a short opera, only 90 minutes) in a bookstore. Tickets are still available. It’s pretty unreal, I’ve got to admit. Tomorrow night we’re proud to host Shameless, a reading full of rad ladies including hostess Melissa Febos (Whip Smart). Thursday night is The Moth StorySLAM with tales of “Small World,” plus our pals at Lost Weekend NYC on the LES are hosting the launch party for their program One Good Book, a benefit for Housing Works. More info to come, watch this space.
And don’t forget to nab tickets for next’s benefit concert with The Portland Cello Project and Emily Wells, and for Safe Space with Nicole Krauss and Simone Dinnerstein, our award-winning series pairing classical musicians with the writers who inspire them.
"She was gone, and all that was left was the space you’d grown around her, like a tree that grows around a fence. For a long time, it remained hollow."
Nicole is HERE for the next installment of Safe Space, our series pairing writers with classical musicians, on June 28 with pianist Simone Dinnerstein. Tickets only $12, here. This series is one of my favorite things we do at the store, and was voted “Best Highbrow Night Out” in New York magazines Best of New York 2012.
