24-01-2019 12:00:00 24-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Juliet Lapidos: Talent | 7:30PM - 8:30PM In this wickedly funny debut, a young graduate student writing about-and desperately searching for-inspiration stumbles upon it in the unlikeliest of places. Anna Brisker is a twenty-nine-year-old graduate student in English at Collegiate University who can't seem to finish her dissertation. Her project: an intellectual history of inspiration. As Anna's adviser is quick to remind her, time is running out. She needs the perfect case study to anchor her thesis-and she needs it now. Amid this mounting pressure, Anna strikes up a tenuous friendship with the niece of the famous author Frederick Langley. Freddy wrote three successful books as a young man, then published exactly nothing for the rest of his wayward, hermetic life. Critics believe Freddy suffered from an acute case of writer's block, but his niece tells Anna that there's more to the story: When he died, he was at work on something new. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=335265 Books are Magic Books are Magic
