Attend Book Case Salon: Amy Sohn

Book Case Salon is a new literary series initiative for those tired of impersonal entertainment and events that leave you hungry and empty, and desiring for more.  Twice a month, the salon will give a small group of book lovers the opportunity to mingle with their favorite authors, in a private and elegant setting, and engage in intimate and passionate dialogues, while savoring eclectic wines and finger-foods.
Beginning Nov 2012, Book Case TV's host, Frederic Colier, along with his wife Nancy, will host a private literary salon for a small group of book lovers in their own UWS home.  They hope to foster a convivial space and curate important works from a wide range of authors.

NOV 28th, 2012.  Our first guest:  Amy Sohn.  Already a guest on Book Case TV (her episode to be broadcast on Nov 12th), Amy, a lifelong Brooklynite, will talk about her latest novel, "Motherland," narrating the drama of the new Brooklyn culture, by following the lives of five fortyish parents.  Her favorite joke: "I was born in the Height and now live in the Slope." But do not be deceived, Amy  has with a sharp dissecting eye and wicked sense of humor.  Her work raises fundamental questions about our existence. How do we remain connected to the lives we have chosen? Is it really possible to have it all, or do we create our own problems no matter the circumstances?Come and meet Amy Sohn in person, ask her questions about her creative process, her characters, their explorations of sexuality, unveil her choice of themes, and go home inspired.
