FIGMENT is ten years old! So I wrote a book!
The book is 268 pages long (or so) and packed with awesome photos from FIGMENT events from cities around the world. And, what's the book say? Well, here's what it says on the back of the book:
"If such a thing as the FIGMENT book existed (but there is no such thing) this might be it (but it isn’t). This is not theFIGMENT book; it is a FIGMENT book. This is a case for creativity, for sharing, for collaboration, for learning, for joy, for gratitude, and for love. It is a case against metrics and measurability. This is not a history of FIGMENT (although FIGMENT is celebrating 10 years of history in 2016). This is an invitation to imagine a place where everyone is invited to create and share and contribute and grow and build community—and then to create the world we imagine, and to live in it. This is a FIGMENT book."
Join us on Thursday, June 2, at 7pm in NYC to get one of the first 100 copies of the book, and get yours signed!Tickets here.
The event will also be a sneak peek of Abby's brand new, not-quite-open-yet bar, LUCKY! I'll do a reading of one chapter or another from the book. There will be drinks and snacks. We'll toast to the success of FIGMENT's TENTH season, and tenth annual NYC event, beginning the next morning on Governors Island.
Books will go on sale to the general public (on Amazon and maybe other places, links to follow) following this event... so this is your chance to get one of the first 100 copies, and to get your book signed!
Your name is probably in this book! (And if it isn't, it should be!)
