You Do Not Want To Miss This: Rosecrans Baldwin

We’re fired up to announce the latest installment of the FSG/GQ “Originals Series,” featuring author Rosecrans Baldwin and Eleanor Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces. In April, we excerpted Baldwin’s new book, Paris, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down—and rapped about his 18 months living and working as an American expat in France. There will be at least a few rounds of free drinks, and a whole lotta hilarious conversation stoked by moderator David Rees.

Here’s the important stuff:
Monday, June 25th, 6:30 pm
Studio X
180 Varick Street, NYC

Space is limited, so RSVP at:

 We last got together in early May at an “Originals” event featuring author Amelia Gray and the band Hospitality. Our friends at FSG have cut this very excellent video, which you can see here: FSG/GQ Originals Series: Amelia Gray and Hospitality
