Le Freak Last Night

February 16, 2012


Last night I was invited to read from my memoir Le Freak

I spent most of Last Night in the Hiro Ballroom at the Maritime Hotel, New York City. I was invited to read from my memoir to support a dear friend and top-shelf author, Anthony Haden-Guest.

Being an author, Anthony sees reading aloud as entertainment. When he's reading, it is! He's a great public reader and he's got a secret weapon, an English accent. I, on the other hand, was raised only a few blocks from the venue, in the heart of Greenwich Village.

Instead of reading from my memoir Le Freak I summarized it along with a music underscore. I did an aural compendium of Le Freak Last Night.
