Award-winning writer and designer Warren Lehrer presents a multimedia performance/reading of his new book. A Life In Books: The Rise and Fall of Bleu Mobley is an illuminated novel that contains 101 books within it, all written by a controversial author who finds himself in prison looking back on his life and career. In this funny and thought provoking performance, Lehrer presents an overview of Bleu Mobley's life in books via many of Mobley's cover designs and other biographical materials including animations, and video performances of Mobley book excerpts by the band BETTY, actress/poet La Bruja, and a live appearance by actress/author Judith Sloan. The resulting retrospective explores the creative process of a writer/artist, as it reflects upon a half century of American/global events, and grapples with the future of the book as a medium as well as the lines that separate and blur truth, myth, and fiction. "An ingenious, one-of-kind novel." KurtAndersen, Studio 360
