A NEXT book selection

Run….don’t walk….. run and get STREET GANG by Michael Davis…

This fantastic book covers the “complete” history of Sesame Street on PBS.

There are really great insights on the creation of the show as well as the Children’s Television Workshop. If you grew up watching the show you’ll especially enjoy reading about the cast and creation of the characters….

A fun read!


What else is everybody reading?

    1. I am reading a lot of Walt Whitman this spring and into the summer in preparation for several projects we have going with The Artful Conspirators, including an outreach piece all about Whitman’s life and works right here in Brooklyn.

      “Specimen Days”, by Whitman, is phenomenal. And I am intensely fascinated and inspired by “The Better Angel: Walt Whitman in the Civil War” by Roy Morris, Jr. I am using the latter as a great source of knowledge and as an imagination springboard for another play, “The Second Pipe of Desire” (for adults).

      I am especially loving Whitman’s Specimen Days and the book The Better Angel: Walt Whitman in The Civil War by Roy Morris, Jr.

      If anyone is in Brooklyn, come check out the play “Whitman’s Brooklyn” at The Old Stone House (a reconstruction of a Dutch Farm House from 1699) in Park Slope in August.
