There’s a nice Bushwick Book Club mention in the New Yorker. It’s coming up Tuesday December 1st at Goodbye Blue Monday.
Here’s what the New Yorker said:
Books inspire many things: movies, plays, religions, and even political platforms. Less frequently, they inspire songs (Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights,” Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit”). For the past year, the Bushwick Book Club, which meets monthly, has addressed that deficiency by choosing a bill of songwriters to compose songs prompted by a chosen book, ranging from “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” to “The Origin of Species.” In celebration of its one-year anniversary, the Book Club offers a best-of performance highlighting the year’s most inspired tunes. Songwriters include Dan Costello, Dibson T. Hoffweiler, Phoebe Kreutz, Ben Krieger, Corn Mo, and the club’s founder, Susan Hwang. (Goodbye Blue Monday, 1087 Broadway, Brooklyn. 718-453-6343. Dec. 1 at 8.)
