Next week’s episode will be a very special night for us! We’re thrilled to be celebrating the launch of @kristinharmel's THE FOREST OF VANISHING STARS, a story of survival, hope, and love set deep in the forests of Eastern Europe during World War II.
For this show, we’re upping the stakes and taking Friends & Fiction Theater a step further by putting on a short, stirring, and emotional Broadway-style mini-musical (with a gravitas that honors the subject matter) written and composed by our very own uber-talented Kristin Harmel. We will be joined by a few special musical guests:
Christina Sivrich (@xtinasiv), whose Broadway credits include Grease and The Wedding Singer; Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter @stephen_kellogg, an author who gives inspiring Ted Talks and is the recipient of the Armed Forces Entertainer of the Year award; and Shaun Hettinger (@neonmoonstudios), F&F’s behind-the-scenes audio/video/tech whiz who is also the lead singer of the band Memorry, and the composer of several TV theme songs including the theme music for the Chelsea Handler show.
Later in the episode, there will be other guests (hi, @sepauthor!) and original cocktail recipes shared care of the fearless leaders of The F&F Official Book Club. We hope you will join us for what is sure to be a truly special and memorable night.
