Tannen's is honored, humbled and delighted to host best-selling author Adam Rubin in conversation with iconoclastic creator Derek DelGaudio as they engage in thoughtful analysis and rigorous academic debate regarding Rubin's new book GLADYS THE MAGIC CHICKEN. Topics will include magic as a reflection of human consciousness, the role of "the magician" as archetype throughout history, the psychology of perception in regard to simulation theory and, also, what those things on the top of a chicken's head are called. The discussion will be followed by a Q&A in which audience members can engage the author. This event is FREE and will be broadcast LIVE on October 19th at 7pm.
Signed and personalized copies of GLADYS THE MAGIC CHICKEN can be pre-ordered here. Please note, books will not ship until the release date on October 26th.
