NYC: House Concert/Lecture Sunday 12/15 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Sunday 15 December, 4:00 – 6:00 pm

Delia Sherman & I are doing a holiday "house concert/lecture" - just think of it as coming and hanging out with us in a living room on the Upper West side, while we shoot the breeze about the way that fantasy literature and traditional folk music play nicely together and make beautiful children.  Come with your own examples of books and stories that do the trick, or get ready to hear us talk - and sing! - about Ellen's World Fantasy Award-winning novel THOMAS THE RHYMER (based on a Scots Border Ballad), and Delia's multiple short stories, like "The Maid on the Shore," plus, of course, her novel THROUGH A BRAZEN MIRROR (from Martin Carthy's rendition of the ballad "The Famous Flower of Serving-Men) . . . and how Ellen stole - er, recycled one of its plotlines.
And, yes, there will be singing.
To find out the Secret Location, call Heather at (212) 957-8386 for reservations and information.
General admission: $15. Folk Music Society of NY members or full-time students: $12.
