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 Bushâ€™s â€œWuthering Heights,â€ Jefferson Airplaneâ€™s â€œWhite Rabbitâ€). 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 â€œThe Unbearable Lightness of Beingâ€ to â€œThe Origin of Species.â€ In celebration of its one-year anniversary, the Book Club offers a best-of performance highlighting the yearâ€™s most inspired tunes. Songwriters include Dan Costello, Dibson T. Hoffweiler, Phoebe Kreutz, Ben Krieger, Corn Mo, and the clubâ€™s founder, Susan Hwang. (Goodbye Blue Monday, 1087 Broadway, Brooklyn. 718-453-6343. Dec. 1 at 8.)
