Just in case it’s slipped your mind, I’m making two public appearances this week to promote All in the Dances: A Brief Life of George Balanchine, the first in New York City and the second in Connecticut.
– Robert Gottlieb and I will be appearing next Tuesday, Nov. 16, at the Barnes & Noble on Union Square (the address is 33 E. 17th St.) to discuss the life and work of George Balanchine with Robert Greskovic, the dance critic of The Wall Street Journal. Gottlieb, the dance critic of the New York Observer, is the author of George Balanchine: The Ballet Maker, just out from HarperCollins. We’ll be signing copies of our books after the talk. (If you’ve already bought All in the Dances, bring it along and I’ll inscribe it with pleasure.)
The show starts at seven o’clock. For more information, go here.
– On Friday, Nov. 19, I’ll be coming to the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford to talk about Balanchine and his legacy with Francis Mason, dance critic of WQXR-FM and co-author of Balanchine’s Complete Stories of the Great Ballets. The show starts at six o’clock, but if you come early, you can see “Ballets Russes to Balanchine: Dance at the Wadsworth Atheneum.” The galleries close at five p.m., time enough to go out to dinner, then come back and hear us talk.
