Joe Milazzo - Crepuscule W/ Nellie (Re-)Launch

Joining us for a thrilling night of conversation as we celebrate the re-launch of Joe Milazzo’s Crepuscule W/ Nellie. 

Joe Milazzo will join Robin Myrick, Brenda Randall, and David Eric Tomlinson for a panel discussion to talk about the book and the many issues that orbit it. Each panel member represents a different perspective and artistic discipline. With every question we will examine what the book is and what the reader believes it to be. 

About the Book

Joe Milazzo's debut novel Crepuscule W/ Nellie explores, via imagined as well as reimagined circumstances and incidents, the relationships between jazz pianist and composer Thelonious Monk, his wife Nellie, and his patron and confidante, the Baroness Pannonica De Koenigswarter. A work of speculative historical fiction, Crepuscule W/ Nellie does not attempt historical accuracy. Neither is it an ekphrastic experiment meant to mimic Monk's brilliance, with his signature dissonant harmonies and angular melodic twists. Instead, much like Monk's composing, Crepuscule W/ Nellie creates a whole new architecture in which to tell its otherwise untold story. (Crepuscule W/ Nellie is the first volume in the #RECURRENT novels series, edited by Janice Lee)
