Adam J. Kurtz: Pick Me Up

Tuesday October 4: 7:00PM 8:00PM

On the heels of his hit first book, 1 Page at a Time, graphic designer, artist and author Adam J. Kurtz delivers another intimate and engaging book that offers perspective, hope, and perhaps the best advice of all—your own. (Plus some goofs because why not.)

Join us at Strand for the official launch of the DIY journal/book/existential experience, Pick Me Up: A Pep Talk for Now and Later. First, we’ll hear from NYC comedic sensation Aparna Nancherla, then Adam and Grace Bonney, founder of Design*Sponge, will discuss creativity and the little things we can make and do for ourselves. We'll also enjoy some poetry performed by Sarah Jean Alexander. Naturally, Adam will stick around after the talk to sign copies of Pick Me Up, and he’d love to see you there! 

And what event would be complete without drinks and snacks? DRY Sparkling will have sweet sips on hand.

Buy a copy of Pick Me Up or a $15 gift card in-store at Strand's main floor registers or at the door to attend. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
