Perfect Day Publishing invites you to Get It While You Can

Jan ’15
7:00 pm
On Wednesday, January 28th, please join Nick Jaina for a night of words at the IPRC as the acclaimed singer/songwriter celebrates the release on Perfect Day Publishing Publishing of his debut memoir, Get It While You Can.
In the words of former IPRC director Justin Hocking: “With a pitch-perfect ear for lyricism and rhythm, Nick Jaina interlaces personal narrative, music criticism, and intimate correspondences into one of those rare books that breaks new literary ground while also making you feel deeply. Jaina lays himself bare, sentence after sentence, yet never dominates the stage. He’s content to mastermind the show from the background, letting exquisite riffs about Nina Simone, Ray Charles, and Paul Simon stand in as emotional correlates for his own heartbreak and music industry tribulations. Get It While You Can is a brilliant and compassionate work by a serious new literary talent.”
WHEN: Wednesday, January 28, 2015 @ 7pm
