PEN PARENTIS LITERARY SALON: “ASPECTS OF LOVE” | Fifteen is pretty much the high water mark of sassy and sullen, when it comes to the rough seas of parenting.

OCEAN VUONG: BOOK SIGNING & READING | While one resident of NYC was out on the campaign trail selling the notion of closed borders, another was spending 2016 as a best-selling author.

HOTSY TOTSY BURLESQUE TRIBUTES THE “STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL” | A long time ago, in a far-out, far, far away place known as the pop culture landscape of 1970s America, confidence gained from the phenomenal box office success of “Star Wars” got the best of its creator, George Lucas, who would almost immediately disavow the debacle […]
