EVENT: Music and Lit to benefit immigrant family reunification

Posted on

Saturday, August 25 Vermont-based independent publisher Whisk(e)y Tit holds its first benefit event in New York City, a reading of Joey Truman’s 2017 novel — KinderRinder — hosted by artist Tom Fruin, with a rotating cast of musicians performing during the reading. Proceeds from the KinderRinder reading and music event will be donated to Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center (las-americas.org).

Pastry artist and performer Kristin Worrall is creating custom desserts and a specialty cocktail for the event.

KinderRinder directly addresses child separation and fascistic horrors in a story about a Nazi grappling with his conscience on a train filled with Jewish children. While a work of fiction, the work has experienced a reawakening from its initial release in 2017, due to the current U.S. administration’s highly publicized policy of separating amnesty-seeking families, including separation of infants and small children akin to those seen in the book.

There is a $12 suggested donation. A $25 donation also includes a book from the Whisk(e)y Tit catalog. An anonymous friend of Whisk(e)y Tit will match the total donations raised up to $500.
