On July 17th, I’m very honored to be one of the readers of David Rakoff’s last book, the verse novel Love, Dishonor, Marry, Die, Cherish, Perish at Barnes and Noble, Union Square, New York City, beginning at 7 p.m. and estimated to conclude at 10 p.m., an ambitious deadline given the vast amount of laughing and crying that will undoubtedly intersperse our solidly professional recitation of the text. It will be fun, and I hope you will be there if you are in NYC.

This day presents another occasion for an Oyster Bar meetup. So at Noon, July 17th, Nanette and I will be there, and a bunch of David’s friends and other Big Apple Folkschoolers already signed on. Come if you can. Please RSVP to Jan@folkschool.org if you are coming so we can arrange reservations.

Love from Brasstown,
Jan

David Rakoff was a very special friend of the John C. Campbell Folk School. Read about his experience here.

Jan..remember us, Rennie and Dick Savoye? We met and heard a storyteller yesterday at UPenn Museum/Archaeology/Anthropology whom you must meet! We told him of you, the Folk School, and the wonders that are preformed there. He led the Summer Wonder workshop yesterday and told the story ‘Marduk and the Creation”…right up your alley and Folkschoolers everywhere! Gave him your name! He seemed mystified..it was providential…hope he contacts you, or you him. Hope to see you in NYC but are leaving next few days post 17th for Oregon. Might miss it…Break a Leg! Fondly, R and D
