About Barbara Rosenthal...
A native New Yorker, Barbara Rosenthal is a prolific, idiosyncratic, highly original Media and Performance artist, referred to in print as a "Media Poet" by The Village Voice and elsewhere since the 1980s.

The novel is entitled “Wish for Amnesia”, and she’ll read a chapter for us now! Barbara Rosenthal

About Ronnie Norpel...
Actress/writer RONNIE NORPEL produces and hosts the popular and eclectic variety show TRACT 187 CULTURE CLATCH bi-monthly on the Upper West Side and performs regularly elsewhere around town. You can find her ficto-memoir BASEBALL KARMA AND THE CONSTITUTION BLUES on Amazon. 

About Larry Littany Litt...
Larry Litt is a New York City born writer, poet and performer. His shamanically inspired poetic rituals are created to address historical and contemporary spiritual, political and social issues while suggesting how to strengthen the natural world around and within us. His work is documented in video and photography. In the 1993 Venice Biennale Litt performed the “VIDEO-MUDANG“ ritual, sharing the award winning German Pavilion with Nam June Paik and Hans Haacke. He has since performed this tribute to fluxus art worldwide. It tells the story of Korean and fluxus artists who integrated their personal shamanisms into contemporary art. His reprise during the “Fluxus Mediale Festival“ at Anthology Film Archives was hailed by critics as an interdisciplinary arts achievement. In his “BURN THE FOX“ ritual, Litt asked participants to burn the books of Rupert Murdoch and his conservative political pundits appearing on Fox News television. Soon afterwards the Fox TV network began to make big mistakes in their political and corporate fascist news reporting. Mr Litt still hasn’t apologized. Litt has a special interest in destroying the insidious book hoax “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” His “HATE BOOKS” “HOLY FIRES” full scale theater ritual performance, along with its talismanic collage series, has been seen at the 2007 Moscow Biennale, in New York City"s at Emily Harvey Foundation’s Blago Bung festival, Zurich’s Cabaret Voltaire, Berlin’s Momentum at Bethanien, Istanbul Bienniale and at New York City’s MagnanMetz Gallery. “WE DON'T CARE WHO YOU ARE; LONG AS YOU GOT MONEY!" A Mock Fundraising Art Auction for and by Artists was performed at Long Island City’s Dean Projects on May16, 2011. A photo installation and video accompanied the performance. Y Gallery in Jackson Heights NYC was the scene of Litt’s original ritual “MAKING GOOD LUCK-ARTISTS SUCCESS RITUAL" which asked artists to declare their desires for a New York gallery exhibition. Gallery locations were chosen from The Monthly NY Gallery Guide, shamanically empowered by Larry Litt, then burned to send their desires in a cloud of smoke to the gods of art’s chaotic nature. Live drumming rhythms awakened the Supernatural Forces of Art that decide who gets what shows. A mobile environmental performance titled, “STEEL CUP ART CARRY” is dedicated to reducing the world’s waste paper and discarded plastic cups at art gallery and museum openings. Reusable steel cups are given to participants at art events. They can carry them to openings for the rest of their lives. Since 2001 Litt has written and produced 30 short films as part of his “THE BLAME SHOW“ series. These films publicly examine everything from September 11th apocalyptic politics to religious hypocrisy and the global oil crisis. The videos were seen on Time-Warner cable television from 2005 to 2007. Beginning in 2008, Pratt Institute’s Pratt Manhattan Gallery annually invites Larry to produce an annual political election night performance event titled Pratt Falls. It topically and poetically combines art and politics with artistic wit and fun. Larry Litt has performed in all eight “Blago Bung“ festivals including at Zurich’s Cabaret Voltaire anniversary celebration with original sound, music and word art projects. “TRIBUTE TO CABARET VOLTAIRE“ was performed at NYC“ Emily Harvey Foundation and will be performed in Riga, Latvia on May 22, 2014. Larry Litt is represented by MagnanMetz Gallery in Chelsea NYC.
