Hope to see everyone tonight at the IDP’s Holiday Party! Sharon Salzberg, Anne Waldman, and Jean Claude Van Itallie, and a few super secret special guests will be in attendance. Dress up for the Photo Booth and be prepared for an equal amount of gratitude and revelry. Buy your ticket here or drop by at 7:00!
In January we’ll have another reason to celebrate: my second book, Your Emoticons Won’t Save You, will be released on Thursday, January 19, 2012! Please RSVP for the launch party, details below.
About the Book:
Alex Bardo is witty, heartbroken, and lost. Going on 21, he is more interested in being the CEO of the Wannabe Poet’s Brigade than in his expensive education. Trying to find his way in the world after a debaucherous and painful summer in 1998 with his hyper-intellectual, trés annoying best friend Gabe, he sets out on a road trip to their childhood summer camp. Grabbing shotgun for the trip are his old camp friends, now all grown-up (sort of): Gideon the Player, Anthony the Traveling Man, and Lucas the Patron of Playtime. Alex is a true seeker and only a partial f-ck up: seeking spiritual aspirin to treat his perpetual hangover, seeking love, and seeking a mystical place called the “real world,” which does nothing but procrastinate upon its arrival.
Join Ethan and his father, David Nichtern, for a wonderful weekend workshop. This event is filling up quickly, please register soon!
