Selected Shorts: A Passion for Central Park with Paul Auster
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space
Central Park is much beloved by New Yorkers, tourists, and artists of all kinds, including hundreds of writers, whose characters have walked through, kissed, killed, birdwatched, played football, played tennis, run, fallen in love, fallen out of love and been inspired by this beautiful oasis in a busy, noisy city. In an evening of selections mostly drawn from the new collection Central Park, edited by Andrew Blauner, Paul Auster will open the evening by talking about how the park has been his muse. Leonard Nimoy and other Broadway and Hollywood actors read selections by Auster, Colson Whitehead, Susan Cheever and more.
