Thursday, September 4: Dmitry Samarov “Where To?” Book Release Party
Dmitry Samarov will be reading from his new book "Where To?" with live musical accompaniment by Bill MacKay (guitar) and Matt Lux (bass). Samarov’s illustrated memoir captures encounters with drunken passengers, overbearing cops, unreasonable city bureaucracy, his fellow cabdrivers, a few potholes, and other unexpectedly beautiful moments. Accompanied by dozens of Samarov’s original artworks—composed during traffic jams, waits at the airport, and lulls in his shifts—the stories in Where To? provide a street-level view of America from the perspective of an immigrant painter driving a cab for money.
