Book Launch of The Last Voyage​ by Lawrence Millman

It’s Spring — lighten up! Join us for a humor-filled reading at the launch of The Last Voyage of Baron Munchausen and other Wayward Tales, a new irreverent chapbook from Arctic explorer and author Lawrence Millman. 

It is a collection of satiric tales​, told in the manner of George Carlin and Italo Calvino, but not — definitely not — Jane Austen or Henry James. Included ​are such luminaries as Jesus Christ (encountering challenging times in NYC), the Lion from the Wizard of Oz (not cowardly, but constipated), and George Washington (suffering from a head wound and, as a result, wanting to be our nation’s first president), along with the inimitable Baron Munchausen, who travels to the Moon and meets both the Man and the Woman in the Moon, just prior to Neal Armstrong’s arrival on our lunar neighbor.

Millman will read tongue-in-cheek selections from the book ​and share his writing​ process.
