They’re off! The lives of Benny, Pearl, and Napoleon et al, are in the minds of thousands, with book launches in Chicago, and most recently, in Brooklyn. At the party of the year, the cocktails – Al Capone and the Plot Twist – were delicious, thanks to my multi-talented daughter Kate and actor and friend Michael Early, the Audio Book reader of The Jazz Palace, did a dramatic performance of the place they called The Stroll.
People streamed to the party at the Community Bookstore on Seventh Avenue, some sipping wine at the back or in the garden, listening to live jazz, and others in the front where the cocktails were poured. Next in Manhattan, the Center for Fiction on Tuesday, April 28, http://bit.ly/1F83MgD. Oh, and you don’t have to make a beeline to the next event. See what all the excitement is about. Read the book of the season: The Jazz Palace http://bit.ly/1AWKSSS.
