June 18th – “Mapping Manhattan” at The Living Room
We’re excited to present original music inspired by Becky Cooper’s new book Mapping Manhattan: A Love (And Sometimes Hate) Story in Maps by 75 New Yorkers. It’s a collection of hand drawn maps of this city – each as different as the New Yorker that created it. They are maps of lives lived and stories told–lamenting, celebrating, remembering.
Come hear the music inspired by these glimpses into our neighbors’ lives. Show is Tuesday, June 18th, 8pm at The Living Room in the Lower East Side. Songs by:
This book choice was inspired by Maria Popova’s awesome blog to inspiration and all things interesting, Brainpickings.org. If you click on the book there and buy it through Amazon, you help her out. If you come hear the songs next Tuesday night, you help out your inner hunger for brand new, literature-inspired songs! (That sound is your soul grumbling for songs about books.)
