July 19th, 8pm is Part 1 of our events for YEAR OF THE MONKEY by Patti Smith!
This is a bit of a departure for us, since we're used to expressing our reactions to the book in song, dance, photography, snacks and cocktails.
We thought, why not have both? Let's have the Bushwick Book Club Book Club in addition to the Bushwick Book Club show.
To lead us through the uncharted book club territory and through the literary terrain of Patti Smith's 2019 memoir(ish) of her experience of 2016 are BBC songwriter Teresa Toro and writer, musician Noah Evan Wilson of The Acoustic Guitar Project.
Here's more on our BBC Book Club hosts for July 19th, 8pm!
A late-blooming songwriter, Teresa tries on different characters and channels their stories of love, regret, and existential indecision – sometimes in the same verse. Teresa is also a regular performer with The Bushwick Book Club, a Brooklyn-based performance series.
Listen to her songs:
