2 Book Events Worth Checking Out

Here's info about a couple of upcoming indie theater-related bookstore events that are worth your time.

The first one is this Friday at 7:30pm at the Barnes & Noble near Lincoln Center (1972 Broadway) -- it features playwrights David Gaard, Carol Polcovar, and Doric Wilson all discussing the Stonewall Riots. Carol & David collaborated last year on the play Stonewall Stories and Doric immortalized the riots in his play Street Theater decades ago. Carol is the artistic director of the Fresh Fruit Festival, which is going on right now as well.

And then next Wednesday, check out Brian Dykstra's one-night only performance of his latest solo show, The Jesus Factor, at New Revolution Books, 146 W. 26th Street , between 6th & 7th Aves. Tickets are $20, and can be reserved by calling 212-691-3345 or emailing revbooksnyc@yahoo.com. Dykstra is the conscience of NYC theatre, in my opinion; read my review of The Jesus Factor to learn more.
