We were lucky to attend a cocktail party for one of our clients, One Grand Books. Their Summer Installation at Whisper Editions was closing last night. For those who haven't been, Whisper's space is awesome. One Grand Books is the brain child of Aaron Hicklin. Its premise: If you were on a desert island for the rest of your life, what 10 books would you take? Mr. Hicklin's curated these lists with help from friends like Tom Ford, Carrie Brownstein, Michael Stipe and more. Super cool.
Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces) Richard Hell (Richard Hell and the Voidoids, amongst much else) and Andrew Solomon (everywhere) read from Lawrence Durrell, Richard Hell, and Carl Sandburg, respectively. One Grand Books Sample Desert Island reading lists from Glenn Ligon, Penny Arcade, Erica Jong, And Justin Vivian Bond.
