From Rob Spillman, the award-winning, esteemed cofounder and editor of Tin House magazine, comes the paperback launch of All Tomorrow’s Parties, an intimate memoir of a rebellious young man's fierce pursuit of an artistic life and a portrait of a shifting Berlin. Born in Germany to two driven musicians, Spillman’s childhood was spent among the West Berlin cognoscenti. After an unsettled youth moving between divorced parents in disparate cities, Spillman would eventually find his way into the literary world of New York City, only to abandon it to return to Berlin just months after the Wall came down in search of the bohemian lifestyle of his idols. But Spillman soon discovered he was chasing the one thing that had always eluded him: a place, or person, to call home. Leigh Newman, Books Editor at O Magazine and author of the memoir Still Points North, joins Spillman for conversation about the urban cultures of Berlin and New York and his own artistic trajectory. A German beer reception generously sponsored by Radeberger follows the conversation at the bookstore.More info See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
