I am stoked to be talking about and reading from Closer to the Ground at the Patagonia Upper West Side store on Wednesday, May 18th. I’m even more excited that this event will be “in conversation with” my brother, Adrian Tomine. There will be food and beer, courtesy of the good folks at Patagonia Provisions, and I think it’s going to be an awesome time.
If you don’t know my brother, he’s a New Yorker cover artist and the author/cartoonist of Summer Blonde, Shortcomings, and most recently, the highly acclaimed, mind-blowingly good, Killing & Dying. <But don’t just take my word for it, check out what New York Times critic A.O. Scott had to say HERE.>He’s also a dyed-in-the-wool Brooklynite, which should set up an interesting country-mouse/city-mouse conversation.
Of course, I’m also looking forward to “foraging” my way through all that great NY food while I’m there, so stay tuned for the report. In the mean time, if you’re in or near The City So Nice They Named It Twice, drop by the event and say hello.
