Set the Page Free — Book Launch Event

October 27, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $20

On Friday, October 27th, the 92nd Street Y will host a reading by some of the most renowned authors in the world, including Jonathan Ames, Lee Child, Sloane Crosley, Joshua Ferris, Chip Kidd, Alain Mabanckou and Joyce Carol Oates—to celebrate the release of the author’s new collaborative novel, Speaking of Work.

Facilitated by cultural powerhouse the 92nd Street Y and tech giant Xerox, each of the writers used Xerox technology to contribute one chapter of the book to create a funny, nostalgic and genuinely charming treatise on the modern workplace. Other collaborators include greats like Jonathan Safran-Foer, Gary Shteyngart, poet Billy Collins and even singer-songwriter, Aimee Mann.

While the event is $20, the book is free for download as an e-book starting on the 27th.
