Book launch: Molly Prentiss presents Tuesday Nights in 1980
In conversation with editor Alison Callahan and agent Claudia Ballard
Wine reception to follow

In 1980, as SoHo and the downtown arts scene are bursting with energy and artistic fervor, New York is pulsating with creativity, but commercialization is about to move across town like a steamroller. It is against this tumultuous backdrop that Molly Prentiss sets her debut novel, Tuesday Nights in 1980, and gives us the unforgettable story of a synesthetic art critic, a charismatic Argentinian painter, and their muse. Prentiss creates a riveting exploration of fame, humanity, art, and loss in a novel Kirkus Reviews calls “An intoxicating Manhattan fairy tale… as affecting as it is absorbing. A thrilling debut.” At tonight’s launch, Prentiss discusses her book with Alison Callahan, her editor at Scout Press, and Claudia Ballard, her editor at WME, followed by a wine reception.
