Coney Events: Michael Schwartz Continues Tour Of Coney Pieces

Last year in August Michael Schwartz, brought us stories from Coney Island.  This year he continues his presentation at the Puffin Room with a fabulous exhibit of visual arts

An announcement from Michael Schwartz:
Dear Friends,
The Puffin Room has been a beloved sanctuary of art for many years and now, sadly, they are closing down.  I was thrilled to be invited to perform there in November 2008, as part of the "Coney Island Maybe" exhibit, and now I am honored to have been asked by the Puffin Room to return and perform some more of the works from my developing book of short stories, monologues, and poems, which I've been touring across New York City.  There will be an exhibit of visual artists' works running for two weeks, with an opening reception April 3rd; there will be a night of music and dance; and there will be a spoken word night.  I will be one of the headliners of the spoken word night, April 10th at 8PM.  I'll be doing about twenty minutes of material, including the world premiere of a new monologue and maybe some other surprises as well.  Please see the attached flyers for all the details.  Thank you.

Happy spring,

"The Last Word"
