This event will take place at our Brooklyn location.Kinsella's new novel, Let Go and Go On and On, moves away from his previous work on 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. Join our hosts from Vol. 1 Brooklyn for a night of readings from the book. Facebook RSVP encouraged but not required.
Laurie Bird appeared in three films: Two Lane Blacktop, Cockfighter, and Annie Hall. Her fiance, Art Garfunkel, was away shooting another film, Bad Timing, when she committed suicide at the age of 26. Let Go and Go On and On blurs what little is actually known of her with her roles in these films. Guided by constraints, it is a collage and a loving tribute.
