THURSDAY JUNE 8
NOW IS THE HOUR
A Love-In for Tom Spanbauer and his new book "Now Is The Hour"
9 PM to latenight
Pier 63 @ 23rd Street
No author has captured the Lost East Village of the early 80's better than TOM SPANBAUER's "IN THE CITY OF SHY HUNTERS", which helps explain his devoted cult following among NYC nightlife folks. In the Portland, Oregon based writer's new novel NOW IS THE HOUR (Houghton Mifflin), the main character sets off from Idaho for another Gay Mecca - sixties' SAN FRANCISCO - with a flower in his hair. In celebration of the book, and to welcome this reclusive icon to Gotham, THE JACKIE FACTORY and a host of "Participating Tribes" announce a one-night LOVE-IN on Thursday, June 8 at PIER 63.
