Roots + Wings Creative Campus
Hors d'oeuvres, wine and local beer
Please join Flatiron Writers Room along with Roots + Wings School of Art and Design and Malaprop's Bookstore for this FREE event as we celebrate the release of acclaimed author Matthew Vollmer's PERMANENT EXHIBIT, a collection of short prose originally composed as status updates on a popular social media platform, and now published by BOA Editions Ltd.
Matthew Vollmer opens a browser window into his own mind with these collage-style essays. Exercising a rapacious intellectual curiosity, he seamlessly integrates flying snakes, mass shootings, emojis, pop stars, stargazing, ghosts, circuses, and a hundred other things. Full of keen observations and unexpected insights, Permanent Exhibit reclaims the art of letting one’s mind wander and explore in the age of the status update.
Readings by the Flatiron Players featuring Maggie Marshall, Tiffany Santiago, Kevin Patrick Murphy, Robert Dale Walker, Jeff Benninghofen and A.K. Benninghofen.
Gallery showing of original work by local visual artists Ginger Huebner, Jeannie Regan and Holly de Saillan.
