Celebrating The Village Voice

IN-STORE EVENT
Tuesday, March 5, 7:30 PM
Tricia Romano presents The Freaks Came Out to Write: The Definitive History of the Village Voice, the Radical Paper That Changed American Culture

With Joe Conason, Nelson George, and Amy Taubin

The Village Voice was the first newspaper to cover hip-hop, the avant-garde art scene, and Off-Broadway with gravitas, and reported seriously on the AIDS crisis and the corruption of Donald Trump long before anyone else was paying attention. It invented new forms of criticism and storytelling and revolutionized journalism, spawning hundreds of copycats. In The Freaks Came Out to Write, former Voice writer Tricia Romano pays homage to the paper with a definitive oral history composed of more than 200 interviews, that tells the story of journalism, New York City and American culture. Romano is joined by fellow former Voice writers -- national correspondent Joe Conason, columnist Nelson George, and film and television critic Amy Taubin -- for a celebration of the most famous alt-weekly of all time.
