'ESCAPE VELOCITY' LAUNCH PARTY

This launch party will be a great opportunity to share stories and celebrate one of America's finest authors. Jennings will give an introductory talk, writer, actor and erstwhile Times columnist Graham Gordy will read from the book and singer/songwriter Mandy McBryde will perform.
