My friend Warren wrote a new book about race and the Broadway musical. How great is that cover?
I told Warren how many notes this got on Tumblr, and he was thrilled. So thrilled that he told me I should post this discount code:
Rutgers University Press is having a special sale right now where you can buy the book for 40% off PLUS get it shipped to you for free. Just go to http://rutgerspress.rutgers.edu/product/Great-White-Way,5070.aspx to purchase the book and use the coupon code: 02RWWW13.
I’ve already pre-ordered my copy. You should do the same.
New Yorkers: Warren will be doing a reading from the book next Tuesday:
I’m doing a book reading/talk around my new book The Great White Way: Race and the Broadway Musical next Tuesday April 22 at 6PM at the NYU bookstore (726 Broadway). I’d love it if you can attend and better yet, regardless of whether or not you can make it, if you can please tell friends and invite them, that would be great. I’ll be signing books and they’ll also be selling copies for 20% off.

I can’t go, but passing this along anyway!
