Art Adventures

Living, Out Loud

The literary arts meet the visual arts when Nassau County Museum of Art hosts six of the area’s most prominent writers in an afternoon of original readings from their works. “Living, Out Loud: Writers Riff on Love, Sweat & Fears” features speechwriter and essayist Robin E. Bernstein; two-time Emmy Award-winning essayist Iyna Bort Caruso, author and New York Times contributor Claudia Cryvatz Copquin, Friars Club historian/head writer and essayist Barry Dougherty, essayist and New York Times “Modern Love” writer Paula Ganzi Licata, and author and essayist Ellen Meister. Taking a page from book readings, which usually involve an author reciting directly from a published chapter, the writers involved in this program take turns at the microphone, each reading an original essay.
