Last night Fred and I caught the Found show at Union Hall in Park Slope….freakn’ awesome! Davy Rothbart read all time favorite finds from his Found Magazine and a personal essay about growing up with a deaf parent. His brother also made an appearance on stage to perform songs inspired by some of his favorite finds. (yeah!! the booty don’t’ stop!)
The crew of Found Magazine will be on tour for the next few months. They’ll be making a stop in my hometown, Asheville NC November 30 at the Grey Eagle. (check it out!) For other tour dates and more info about Found check out their website.
I can not recommend Found enough. It’s truly a testament to everyday stories that when only half told can contain more truth than entire novels. I can’t remember when I first picked up the first Found collection, but that first collection sent me to This American Life to the Booty Tape, to The Lone Surfer of Montana Kansas, and back again.
go to the show. order the book. go find a story.
