I received this information courtesy of my friend Robin Goldfin. It was 22 years ago (!!) that Robin was my expository writing teacher at New York University. And oh, what a little shit I was. Smart as a whip (if I may say so), but something a total wiseass (can you imagine?) and Robin was expert with me — and I don’t mean just in terms of him handling me. His writing advice was acute and direct and meaningful in a way that only became apparent months or years afterward. And today we’re friends, which is just about the nicest thing in the world.
Anyway, here’s the 411:
The new season for the Jewish American Writers Series will begin on Sunday November 9th at The Cornelia Street Cafe. This year I’ll be joined by two co-hosts, Debra Goldberg and Deborah Greenhut who will help to curate future readings.
For this first event the hosts will also be the featured readers: Goldberg, Greenhut and Goldfin.
There will be drama, prose and song (I’ll be joined by composer Oren Neiman and actor Mike Finesilver in a few songs from THE LAWS OF MOTION.) Please join us if you can.
