Candy Everybody Wants Book Party

  • About the author MS

Yesterday evening at the Bowery Electric, with the help of OUT Magazine, we celebrated the publication of Josh Kilmer-Purcell’s new novel Candy Everybody Wants. The recently opened Bowery Electric provided a smoothly lit atmosphere for a Monday crowd and the complimentary Christiana Vodka (perhaps “the world’s smoothest vodka”) kept everybody classy. I like mine with a twist! Things remained casual with the exception of some fine words delivered by Aaron Hicklin, editor-in-chief of OUT, and Josh, the man-of-the-hour. The trippiest visuals were most likely provided by the books themselves.

I would have taken one but it was in another dimension. We also had some special guests (well, close friends of the author) who came to lend their support.

Josh Kilmer-Purcell and James Frey took a moment to beam into the camera. Tonight these two handsome gentlemen will appear at The Blender Theater for a reading and book-signing.
