ATP is pleased to announce that Lapham's Quarterly will be joining us at I'll Be Your Mirror this year to host a literary stage on Sunday October 2nd at the event. Lapham's Quarterly sets the story of the past in the frame of the present. Four times a year, the editors choose a question current in the headlines--foreign war, financial panic, the whereabouts of God--and bring answers to it from authors whose powers of observation and expression have passed the test of time. The theme at I'll Be Your Mirror will be "The Future" in keeping with their forthcoming issue centered around that subject. Stay tuned for further announcements shortly.
The weekend will also host The Jonathan Levine Gallery, renowned artist SHEPARD FAIREY (who has created the art for this event and will also DJ) will be presenting an exhibition of his art over the weekend entitled Revolutions: The Album Cover Art of Shepard Fairey. More details of the exhibition will be confirmed soon.
