Peter Gould to host signing of his new novel!
At NEYT, Wednesday June 4, 7:00 pm
Peter Gould, long time director at NEYT, and the smaller half of Vermont's legendary comedy duo, Gould & Stearns, will sign copies of his new novel, WRITE NAKED, at a special event at 7:00 pm, Wednesday, June 4th on the New England Youth Theatre stage. Published by New York publishing house, Farrar Straus and Giroux, and edited by famed young adult-editor Melanie Kroupa, WRITE NAKED is for mature readers aged 15 to 99.
The novel is a long-awaited semi-sequel to Gould's first novel, BURNT TOAST. Like the earlier book, it is a coming-of-age and initiation story set in the woods of Vermont, with a strong, mystical sense of responsibility: both for the human body and for the global environment. WRITE NAKED has four main characters: a sixteen year old boy, a sixteen year old girl, a log cabin, and an antique typewriter.
Senior NEYT actors will take part in the event, reading selected pages of the novel--but not enough to tell you what happens at the end.
