Emmy and Tony-award winning actor, writer, and former NEA Chairperson Jane Alexander reads from her new book, Wild Things, Wild Places: Adventurous Tales of Wildlife and Conservation on Planet Earth.
(“Veteran actress Alexander’s latest offering is an impassioned if measured narrative of her explorations of little-known corners of the Earth with an eye toward celebration and conservation . . . The real force of the book resides in the author’s articulation of her exhilaration of the wonders of nature (particularly her love of birds) and her willingness to ford streams, slash through jungles, and scale mountains to defend it.”– Publishers Weekly)
Tony-awarding playwright, Richard Greenberg reads from his memoir, RULES FOR OTHERS TO LIVE BY: Comments and Self-Contradictions.
(“Richard Greenberg turns life upside down and sideways.

He’s a debunker of the pretensions of daily life.—Delia Ephron, author of Sister Mother Husband Dog and Siracusa
