Event Navigation

Robert Markowitz left his lucrative criminal law practice to become a clown and kid’s musician and wrote a novel about it. The author will flesh out five steps for fictionalizing real life, using Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises as a template. Markowitz has written personal essays for the New York Times, released three children’s albums of original songs, and played thousands of shows. He has worked as a teacher, an attorney, and a clown. Clown Shoes is his first novel in which he explores mid-life crisis – and passion. Please register by calling 860-584-7790. This event is free to attend.
