Just Kids from the Bronx: An Evening with Arlene Alda and Chazz Palminteri
Thu. Mar 5 at 7:30 pm

Bill Clinton calls this collection “a down-to-earth, inspiring book about the American promise 
fulfilled.” Weaving together oral histories of 65 accomplished Bronx natives—including Carl Reiner, Mary Higgins Clark, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bobby Bonilla, and Chazz Palminteri—Arlene Alda has created a moving, fond portrait that spans six decades of Bronx living.
The evening starts with a screening of A Bronx Tale, a warm, vibrant film about a young man under the dueling influences of his father (Robert De Niro, in his directorial debut) and the mob boss who runs the streets (Chazz Palminteri, who also wrote the screenplay). Film Details: Robert Deniro. 1993. 121m. R. USA. Swank Releasing.
Q&A author Arlene Alda and actor/writer Chazz Palminteri. Copies of Just Kids From the Bronx will be available for purchase courtesy of The Village Bookstore.

An Evening with Novelist Richard Price
Tue. Mar 17 at 7:15 pm

"As celebrated as he is for his books like Lush Life and Freedomland, and his screenwriting (The Color of Money, Sea of Love, and a much heralded residency on David Simon and Ed Burns’s The Wire), Price may be even more admired, in certain pockets of literary hipster land, for his research. There are few people, it seems, who have spent as much time in the back of a radio car (or with those who spend most of their time avoiding that fate) without eventually needing an attorney as Price." (Matthew Lynch, Vanity Fair)
Novelist and screenwriter Richard Price will join Janet Maslin for a free-wheeling conversation about his stellar writing career. Price's latest novel, The Whites, (written under the pseudonym Harry Brandt) is an electrifying story of a New York City police detective under siege. The program will also feature clips from Price's sizable body of work, including Clockers, an adaptation of Price's novel of the same name which also served as inspiration for the acclaimed HBO series, The Wire.
Q&A Richard Price with JBFC Board President Janet Maslin. Copies of The Whites will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of The Village Bookstore.
