Scenes from Brooklyn Book Festival Event

Two weeks ago today, as part of the Brooklyn Book Festival, the first public reading of Jaymes Jorsling’s play based on The Jazz Loft Project and my forthcoming book, Gene Smith’s Sink, was held at the Invisible Dog Art Center on Bergen Street.  Below, belatedly, are a few pictures from the afternoon’s private reading/rehearsal and the night’s performance, all directed by Christopher McElroen, whose current direction of the first-ever adaptation of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man was featured on NPR’s All Things Considered yesterday.
