The Bushwick Book Club: Good Talk

Ye gods, the hunter has become the hunted!

Mira Jacob Good Talk









I got tapped to write a song about Mira Jacob’s new graphic memoir, Good Talk, and perform it as part of the always amazing Bushwick Book Club, Sunday, September 22  at 7pm at Barbés in Brooklyn. I’m gonna need you to buy me a drink after.

Author Mira Jacob will be in attendance and giving a reading in addition to all the original songs by 13 local songwriters, choreographers, artists and chefs in response to her candid tale of growing up in one of the few East Indian families in 70’s/80’s New Mexico and raising a child in an interracial family in the years leading up to the Trump presidency.

Necromancers of the Public Domain: The Art of Aubrey Beardsley

I’ll be rolling out my patented hostess schtick October 7 for the next installment of my monthly series, Necromancers of the Public Domain wherein an aged book from the New York Society Library is given new life as a 1-Night-Only NYC variety show.

This month’s title, The Art of Aubrey Beardsley is especially dear to me as the artist was a great favorite of my late father’s, who owned a similar volume he didn’t hide nearly well enough.

Ayun Halliday author of No Touch Monkey

No Touch Monkey and I are excited to be traveling to Easton, Pennsylvania to participate in the inaugural Easton Book Festival October 26 and 27.

You bet I’ll have copies of East Village Inky #60 on hand to accompany the zine reading / slide show I’ll be giving on Sunday, after which I’ll be slipping on a full body monster costume to help out my friends in Big Nazo. Uh…they know I’m claustrophobic, right?

It’s all in the service of literature, folks.
