Join Kasey Lansdale and Jonathan Levit for a night filled with music and magic!

Kasey will be singing the hits and her own original tunes—a mix of country blues. Chuck Dauphin with Billboard Magazine said it best.“As a vocalist, she walks the line between traditional and contemporary sounds throughout. She knocks out some notes that will leave you wondering ‘How did she do that?’ ”

Jonathan will be presenting a show filled with comedy, mentalism and absolute mystery. Teller, from Penn & Teller said it best, “Jonathan is funny, elegant, and disturbingly smart. Like something cuddly with really sharp teeth.”

  • Fear of Flying

    By Erica Jong

    Signed Trade Paperback

    Before Hannah from Girls, Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades of Grey, and Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, there was Isadora Wing, the uninhibited, outspoken protagonist of Erica Jong’s revolutionary novel. First published in 1973, Fear of Flying caused a national sensation, fueling fantasies, igniting debates about women and sex, and introducing a notorious phrase to the English language. Forty years later, Isadora’s honest and exuberant retelling of her sexual adventures—and misadventures—continues to provoke and inspire, and stands as an iconic tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood. With provocative cover art by illustrator Noma Bar, this special fortieth-anniversary edition will introduce a new generation of women to Jong’s pioneering novel.

    This weekend’s NFL games were more agony. The Jets are down to their third string quarterback. And the Giants, as of this morning, are benching Eli Manning.
