Playwright Isaac Oliver (check out his on-again, off-again solo show “Intimacy Idiot” if you get the chance) talked about a less than romantic tryst and took a picture with Bookvibe correspondent Mike Blejer. Said picture may have been taken in the sixties and only found now in a box in the attic.

Writer Joe Berkowitz told a story about the trials and tribulations of apartment hunting in New York and took a picture with bookvibe correspondent Mike Blejer afterwards.

Actor-Writer-Storyteller Katherine Wessling was also on the show, and afterwards took a picture with bookvibe correspondent Andrew Tavin who may have not been prepared for the intensity of the iphone camera flash.

Bookvibe was at the July edition of Blaise Allysen Kearsley’s “How I learned ” storytelling series. Here’s she is telling a hilarious story about her neighbor.
