I have been invited to the American Academy of Arts and Letters next Monday, June 25, 2007 at 7 PM to have my book Cowboy Ned & Andy read to me by Chris Chalk, an actor from Philip Seymour Hoffman's LAByrinth Theater Company.
The evening also features Jules Feiffer, Sonia Manzano ("Maria" from Sesame Street), and master puppeteer Marty Robinson, also from Sesame Street.
At some point during the evening, I will be called to the stage to show how I draw "The Emotions of Cowboy Ned, as Demonstrated by His Mustache."
The event is part of a benefit for the Hamilton Heights School, an elementary school in West Harlem/Washington Heights.
It's bound to be a thrilling evening!
