So The Actress is coming out July 1. I am super stoked and nervous and doing a lot of walking lunges. To help me celebrate, everyone in New York City and all of their friends are invited to my Bookcourt launch, on the pub date, July 1.
I had 200 people come to Barnes & Noble Astor Place in 1999 when I wrote Run Catch Kiss. One of these people was my father, who came incognito in dark wraparound sunglasses and stood in the front row – after I suggested he not attend. His dark glasses caused my high school friends to approach him and say, “Mr. Sohn, good to see you. Why are you wearing dark glasses?” Now it’s 15 years later and BN Astor Place is gone but wouldn’t it be great if that many people came to Bookcourt and proved that outdoor drinking and/or watching TV on the computer in is not as much fun as hearing a reading of a gripping, Gothic, feminist, Zeigesty, juicy novel of marriage?
We’ll have food and libations.
Here’s the link with all the info.
And here is a cute pic of Bookcourt.
