Strand Favorites: Novelist Ron Currie Jr. Talks with Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie
January 9: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
The staff at the Strand have long been recommending Ron Currie Jr.’s fiction (God is Dead and Everything Matters) to unprecedented degrees. Now we’re thrilled to host a night of conversation and music with this great novelist and one of our favorite musicians, Ben Gibbard, lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service.
Interspersed between conversation about writing, making music, and all sorts of other topics, Ron Currie Jr. will give us a preview of his forthcoming novel, Flimsy Little Plastic Miracles, and Ben Gibbard will perform some beautiful acoustic songs.
