Spoonbill’s 20th Anniversary will fall in November of this year. Special events to mark it will be announced. In the meantime we have two readings of note coming up:

April 4 (Thursday, 8PM): We welcome back GEOFF DYER who will be presenting his most recent book Broadsworth Calling Danny Boy: Watching “Where Eagles Dare” and also speaking about his 2017 “The Street Photography of Gary Winogrand”. Mr. Dyer never lets us down. Admission is free. Location: our flagship 218 Bedford Avenue shop.

April 9 (Tuesday, 8PM): coming in from the West Coast for his only New York appearance, Spoonbill hails the one and only LEONARD KOREN. Trained as an artist and architect, in 1976 he created WET: The Magazine of Gourmet Bathing, an avant-garde publication influential in the development of postmodern aesthetics. Subsequently Koren has written numerous books including Arranging Things (Out-of-Print) and Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, the classic volume on the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Admission is free. Location: 218 Bedford Avenue.
