2012 saw the release of Tim Kinsella’s first novel, The Karaoke Singer’s Guide to Self-Defense. We were big admirers of that novel, and the ways in which it depicted a number of lives intersecting in and around a gentleman’s club/karaoke bar in a small Midwestern town. Kinsella’s new novel, Let Go and Go On and On, moves away from the quotidian rhythms of small-town life and is based on the life of actress Laurie Bird, who appeared in films like Annie Hall and Two-Lane Blacktop before her death at age 26. In a recent review, Mel Bosworth called Kinsella’s new novel “[a]n excellent study of the sometimes ephemeral nature of the free soul’s beauty.”
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting Kinsella at WORD Brooklyn on Thursday, July 10th for an evening of readings from the book.
WORD is located at 126 Franklin Street in Brooklyn; the event will begin at 7:00 pm. Facebook RSVP here.
