@ Busboys and Poets 14th & V: Val Emmich - The Reminders

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Emmich’s bittersweet first novel focuses on Gavin Winters, who has just lost his partner. After burning all the mementos and relics of his relationship with Sydney, he tries another way to relieve his pain: he moves from Los Angeles to New Jersey and asks his friend’s daughter Joan to use her preternatural memory to help him. If she can bring back Sydney by recalling his visits over the years, Gavin will use his musical talents to help her win a songwriting contest. But he hadn’t bargained on some of the surprises lingering in her uncanny memory, and Gavin soon has different kinds of loss to grapple with. A singer-songwriter and actor, Emmich, who appears regularly on Vinyl and Ugly Betty, has crafted a well-paced duet, letting Gavin and Joan alternate as narrators of their story. Emmich’s presentation will include an acoustic performance.
