World Premiere: "Making Sweet Tea" documentary film    

 
September 23, 2019 at 7:00pm
Landmark's Century Centre Cinema   2828 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60657 USA

 
World premiere screening of the new documentary film, Making Sweet Tea, co-produced and co-directed by Nora Gross '08. The story of Sweet Tea spans more than a decade. Starting off as a scholarly book by Northwestern University Professor E. Patrick Johnson, it has since been adapted into a critically acclaimed one-man show and now this powerful new documentary. Each iteration highlights different characters and topics in the lives of black gay men of the south it chronicles. In the film, Johnson travels home to North Carolina to come to terms with his past, as well as visits Georgia, New Orleans, and Washington, D.C. as he reconnects with six of the men he interviewed for the book. The men update Johnson on their lives and recount memories of their personal struggles – as well as their fleeting blissful moments – growing up black and gay in the conservative south. Throughout, Johnson also recreates highlights from the stage show. The film, like the previous iterations, gives voice to a rarely heard and seen culture. Touching, uplifting and spiced with moments of delicious humor, this is MAKING SWEET TEA.   
 
The film will also be screening at Out on Film Festival in Atlanta on October 5, 2019 (https://www.outonfilm.org).
 
Future screening dates will be posted at https://sweetteafilm.com/screenings

Refinery Hotel, Chickadee Prince Bookstore 
63 W. 38th Street, New York, NY 10018 USA            

 
Dear Tigers,
On Thursday, September 19 at 6 pm, I will be making an appearance and signing books at the Chickadee Prince Bookstore in Manhattan. My latest novel, THE LAST AT-BAT OF SHOELESS JOE  imagines the disgraced ballplayer, Shoeless Joe Jackson, finding redemption in his last years.
 
The Chickadee Prince Bookstore is located (for one day only) in the store on the ground floor of the very fashionable Refinery Hotel, at 63 West 38th Street, between 5th and 6th Avenue. You can see the online invite here, and more about the bookstore here.
 
Free wine and light food will be served.
 
Also on the bill with me is Steven S. Drachman, author of the acclaimed new historical fantasy novel, Watt O'Hugh and the Innocent Dead.
New York Post baseball columnist Ken Davidoff calls Joe ""a gripping story that is both illuminating and emotional... Great for baseball fans, and even true-crime enthusiasts,"" and Booklist writes, ""Burgess has a genuine affinity for small-town southern life and portrays Jackson as a complex man who stunted himself emotionally in the aftermath of his banishment ... Intriguing!""
 
You don't have to buy anything! I'll be happy to sign your book, or just come by to listen to the reading, share a glass of wine, and say Hello.

American Royals NYC Launch

American Royals NYC Launch

Shakespeare & Co
2020 Broadway, New York, NY 10023 USA

 
Hi all!
 
My new book American Royals is almost here! My launch event is next Tuesday September 10, at the Shakespeare & Co on the Upper West Side--I’ll be in conversation with Claire Dodson, the Entertainment Editor at Teen Vogue!
 
American Royals is essentially Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. It reimagines present-day America as a monarchy, with a feminist twist: focusing on the princess who will be America’s very first queen.
 
Of course, please bring friends, or forward this invitation to anyone who might be interested.
 
Hope I get to see you there!
Katie

Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater
425 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003

Advertisements often feature smiling, retouched women at the forefront. Often, we say that such women are “cute”. This is a repeated pattern, or motif, in society; what is its purpose and what are its effects? Why do we often say that toy-like robots are cute while industrial robots are scary? Do technologies that are cute signal that they are non-threatening? In response to these questions, the People Movers, a dance company, and the Robotics, Automation, and Dance (RAD) Lab, a research group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, present "Babyface", premiering at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater in the Dance NOW Festival Sept. 7 at 7pm.
