Tomorrow: Saturday April 5, 3pm -- I will be reading as part of Iowa City's great Mission Creek Festival, the book and music fest put on by cultural impresarios Andre Perry, +Kembrew McLeod, Joseph Tiefenthaler and others. I'm basically playing backup for stars like Leslie Jamison, Rachel Kushner, Philip Glass. I will be sharing the stage with musician John Lindenbaum at Revival, 3pm, 117 E. College Street.

David Rubinstein, then a first year medical student, on the night of his engagement to my mom at her apartment in Queens. Filmed by his bride to be, December 1964.
