‘Strings Attached’ authors to speak in public

February 1, 2014 by  

Authors Joanne Lipman and Melanie Kupchynsky will grant an audience with readers early this February about their latest work.

On Wednesday, February 5th, they will be speaking at the Hewlett-Woodmere Public Library in Hewlett, New York about their co-written book Strings Attached, which is about their music teacher and Melanie’s father Jerry Kupchynsky, or Mr. K., and how he inspired them. It also poses the question as to whether or not so-called “tough love” and high expectations might be better for students and young people.

Joanne Lipman is a force in the journalism world. She was the first woman to ever become the Deputy Managing Editor of the Wall Street Journal. She was also the Editor-in-Chief and founder of the Conde Nast Portfolio magazine.

Melanie Kupchynsky has been a violinist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1989. She first performed with the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, which was then directed by John Williams of Hollywood soundtrack fame. Prior to joining the CSO, she also performed with orchestras in Portland, Hartford, Springfield, and Pittsburgh.

Promoters for this event might want printing companies to create flyers, posters, or other promotional printed materials to advertise for the reading. Distributing these advertisements in nearby towns like Valley Stream or Rockville Centre might draw in more audience members who want to learn about the book.

The event is free to attend and runs from 2pm until 3:30pm. It is sponsored by the Hachette Book Group.
