Tuesday, April 20: My First New York with David Rakoff, Kara Walker, and more @ Greenlight Bookstore

My First New York: Early Adventures in the Big City (As Remembered by Actors, Artists, Athletes, Chefs, Comedians, Filmmakers, Mayors, Models, Moguls, Porn Stars, Rockers, Writers, and Others)

With author David Rakoff and artist Kara Walker

Hosted by HarperCollins editor Matt Weiland and New York Magazine editor David Haskell

"From the pages of New York Magazine comes My First New York, a glorious collection of recollections and reminiscences as fifty of the city’s most famous residents recapture the kicks and thrills of first arriving in the Big Apple. Actors and athletes, rock stars and porn stars, writers, artists, and politicos all share their hilarious, frightening, amazing early big city adventures. This evening at Greenlight, the book’s editor (and Fort Greene’s own) Matt Weiland and New York Magazine senior editor David Haskell host Brooklynites who tell their stories of arrival. Join David Rakoff (author of Fraud and Don’t Get Too Comfortable) and visual artist Kara Walker (creator of After the Deluge and visual works featured at the Met and many other museums) as they reminisce about their first experiences. Then share your own stories of coming to the city in the Q&A!"
