David Mitchell and David Byrne

Jul 14, 2020

American Utopia meets Utopia Avenue.

Join us for a one-of-a-kind conversation on writing, music and the creative life with two visionary artists—bestselling storyteller David Mitchell and pop/rock icon David Byrne—upon the publication of Mitchell’s new novel, Utopia Avenue.

The stunningly original author of Cloud Atlas, The Bone Clocks and Slade House, Mitchell now invents Utopia Avenue, the strangest British band you’ve never heard of.

“It is a rollicking, rapturous tale of 1960s rock ’n’ roll,” wrote Publishers Weekly. “Mitchell unspools at least a dozen original song lyrics and descriptions of performances that are just as fiery and infectious as his narratives. He delivers more fun, more mischief, and more heart than ever before.”

Each ticket comes with a signed copy of Utopia Avenue, and the first 100 purchasers will have the opportunity to join a virtual signing line for a one-on-one conversation with Mitchell. More information on the virtual signing will be sent closer to the event date. 92Y is working with Community Bookstore on this event.
