  Abstract Expressionism was the defining movement in American art during the years following World War II, making New York City the center of the international art scene. But, what did it mean? The drips, the spills, the splashes, the blotches of color, the wild spontaneous energy--signifying what?

Richard Klin’s new book Abstract Expressionism For Beginners will not only help you understand, but also appreciate the art of some of the most iconic figures in modern art--Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and others.

Explore their lives and artistic roots, the heady world of Greenwich Village in the 1940s and 1950s, the influence of jazz, the voices of critics, and the enduring legacy of a uniquely inspired group of artists. Richard Klin is a freelance writer and editor and the author of Something to Say: Thoughts on Art and Politics in America. He joins us along with the book's illustrator, Lilly Prince.

  The Golden Notebook Bookstore and author Robert Burke Warren will be celebrating the publication of his debut novel, Perfectly Broken.

The Perfectly Broken Book Party with Music will take place at the Kleinert/James Arts Center in Woodstock on Saturday where Robert will read, play songs featured in the story, hold a Q & A, and sign books.

The novel tells the story of Grant Kelly. His rock star days may be behind him, but as a stay-at-home dad his life is getting more interesting by the day. It's the beginning of the post 9/11 era, and he and his wife and four-year-old son have traded a New York City apartment for a Catskills farmhouse, where ghosts from the past, worries for the future, and temptations in the present converge to bring about drastic changes in their marriage, their friendships, and their family.
