In this special evening created by NationalSawdust+ and the London Review of Books, writers and musicians will reflect on Whitney Houston as artist, actress and icon, and help us consider her anew. Poet, critic, and melomaniac August Kleinzahler and musicians such as Du Yun and Shayna Dunkelman, Carl Hancock Rux, and Esperanza Spalding will share performances and readings inspired by Houston's sweeping body of work. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=309764 National Sawdust National Sawdust
