Stephen Halpert book

This event has been moved to Wednesday, October 1, 2014.

 

Local Author Stephen Halpert will talk about the writing process, answer questions and read from his new book Abracadabra Moonshine: and Other Stories.

Ever since he was a boy Stephen has been fascinated by art, giving himself an informal art education by wandering through museums in his native Providence, Boston, and New York. His influences include DADA Photo Montage, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, the collage boxes of Joseph Cornell and Betye Saar and Robert Rauschenberg’s inventive assemblage.

A professional writer and editor since graduating Emerson College in 1964, he discovered that collage work helped him to relax and avoid writers’ block. He has published a number of books, articles and columns on American literary, photographic and social history; and rock music and pop culture. Today he writes a weekly humor column, American Scene published on line and in The Grafton News.

His new book will be available for purchase at the close of the event.
