New Play Reading at Book Culture (UWS)

This Saturday afternoon, head out to Book Culture on the Upper West Side to browse some legendary literary inventory, and also to hear a new play. My new full-length drama TOO WONDERFUL will have an informal reading as part of the Bookshop Workshop reading series. We'd love to hear your thoughts.

Synopsis: In April, 2014, 273 schoolgirls were kidnapped from their boarding school in northern Nigeria. TOO WONDERFUL is the story of a retired school teacher from South Carolina who has a vision from God telling her where the girls are, and commanding her to go get them.

WHEN: Saturday April 18, @ 3:00 PM
WHERE: Book Culture 536 W 112th St, New York, NY 10025 (between Broadway and Amsterdam)
