Harper Perennial, Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, & WORD Bookstores present DARK SPARKLER: A book release event with Amber Tamblyn and Yo La Tengo live in concert, hosted by Dorothea Lasky. Complimentary wine & cheese courtesy of Harper Perennial. Books on sale from our friends at WORD Bookstores. A book signing will follow the performance.

Doors at 6:30pm, show at 7:00pm sharp.

Actress and author Amber Tamblyn and iconic alternative rock band Yo La Tengo present a special musical and lyrical hybrid showcase of the poems in Dark Sparkler, a haunting collection that explores the lives and deaths of more than 25 actresses who died tragically before their time. Verse and music intertwine during a 45 minute journey to tell the emotionally charged stories of these deceased women, and Tamblyn's dark revelations in researching them over the course of six years. Poet Dorothea Lasky, author of Rome (W. W. Norton 2014), will host the event.
