Tickets for our short film “The Thing That Kills Me the Most” will go on sale on September 8 for the granddaddy of all USA film fests, the 57TH ANNUAL NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL. The short will screen sometime after 8:30 P.M. on Sunday, October 6 and sometime after 6:15 P.M. on Thursday, October 10th in one of the city’s grandest houses, the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center. I will be there with the film’s incomparable director Jay Giampietro for a photo shoot along with the other family members and friends (including the brilliant satiric narrator Dennis Polifroni) who comprise the cast of this impressionist gem about the mayhem at domestic gatherings. Needless to say we are over the moon still!


This coming Saturday the annual Princeton Children’s Book Festival will be held between the hours of 11:00 A.M. till 4:00 P.M. on the plaza next to the Princeton Public Library main branch.  Lucille and some of the boys will be accompanying me to this festive event.  I am leaning towards doing another year (the 8th consecutive) in the Caldecott Medal Contender series at Wonders in the Dark.  The project would launch sometime this month.  James Clark’s latest brilliant essay in his Ingmar Bergman series (Shame) published ten days ago.  J.D.
