My Amazing Friend Rayya!

Hello all!

Followers of this page will have heard me speak before about my incredible friend Rayya Elias, who published her first book this year: "Harley Loco: A Memoir of Hard Living, Hair and Post-Punk, From The Middle East to the Lower East Side".

I love this memoir so much that not only did I write the introduction to it, I went on book tour with Rayya this spring (and some of you came to our events — which were awesome, were they not?! NYC, DETROIT, MIAMI — we love you all!)

She's doing one more reading this coming weekend, very nearby to my hometown in NJ — at the Clinton Book Shop in Clinton, NJ. The event is on Saturday June 22nd at 1pm. Don't miss it: Rayya is THE REAL DEAL! An amazing storyteller, an amazing woman, an amazing life force.

And if you haven't read her gorgeous and harrowing book yet…do it!

Big love,

Rayya Elias | The Clinton Book Shop
Rayya will also be playing selected original music. Join us for what will be an amazing afternoon. Light snacks and complimentary wine will be served.
