Anglo-American Repertory Company (AARC) News

In what may be the perfect display of cross-pond collaboration, AARC member Michael Graves will be appearing at Barnes and Noble at Lincoln Triangle (1972 Broadway at 67th St, New York, NY 10023) on Friday, March 26th at 7:30pm to read excerpts from the new book A Yank Back to England by Denis Lipman during its booksigning event.

Pulitzer prize winning author Michael Dirda of the Washington Post has this to say about the book:

"Half memoir, half travel book, A Yank Back To England never stints the
reader: Here is England seen entire, from inside out, from bottom to top, as Denis Lipman returns from America to his working-class family home in blighted Dagenham. From there he, his young American wife, and his cockney Mum and Dad embark on a series of funny, touching, madcap and even surreal adventures as they visit celebrated landmarks and holiday spots of England—as well as a good many pubs. The result is an absolutely wonderful book, not only about going home again but also about love and family and tradition and the passage of the years."
--Michael Dirda (Pulitzer Prize-winning literary critic and author of the memoir An Open Book)

And this from the film and stage actor, Michael York...

A perceptive, engaging and informative take on contemporary England as seen through the eyes of a fellow expatriate who writes with humor and affection. The cast of characters has an almost Dickensian vivacity." - Michael York

There's even a chance to win a good old fish and chip dinner for two at one of our personal favourite restaurants, The ChipShop. For more information about this event please click here.
