Sex, Booze & Books: TINARS saucy little summer season
Cover La Petite Mort

After a hectic spring season, which featured punk bands, storytellers, singer-songwriters and many fascinating authors, This is Not a Reading Series has decided to slip under the book covers with a nightcap for two steamy summer evening events.

Join us on June 20th as Sex Columnist Sasha Van Bon Bon and renowned Fine Art Photographer Will Santillo share a candid conversation about women on a solo mission as we explore the art of photographing female masturbation at the launch of Santillo’s new book, La Petite Mort.  
On June 21 we’ll taste, hear and see how saloons and taverns changed history as we know it as Christine Sismondo, author of America Walks into a Bar discusses taproom culture with TINARS Artistic Director, Marc Glassman. Sandy De Almeida will shake up some colonial punch and pre-prohibition cocktails and D.J. Punchy and D.J. Erica will spin rock anthems and vintage jazz.

Stay tuned to our site for announcements of the TINARS Fall Season—which will be full of tasty surprises.
