Don’t Miss Open Book – TV

Open Book is a new show about books, which focuses on a single spot on Earth in each episode to introduce you to the writers and other storytellers–musicians, actors, poets and more–whose work reminds us that we’re all connected through the stories we have to tell and the communities we inhabit.

In the premiere episode, they visit Ft. Greene, Brooklyn, a neighborhood with a rich cultural heritage, to meet some of the writers and artists who live there including former child soldier Ishmael Beah , award-winning novelist Jennifer Egan , legendary jazz musician Bill Lee, Walt Whitman devotee Daryl Blaine Ford, creative genius Carl Hancock Rux, Def Jam poet Suheir Hammad, singer Nucomme, and star of stage and screen, actor Jeffrey Wright.

The pilot will premiere nationally on LinkTV (DirectTV channel 375, Dish Network channel 9014) on May 13th at 11:30pm EST. A special sneak preview will be broadcast on Monday, May 11th at 8:30pm EST on LinkTV, as well as on New York City’s Time Warner Cable channel 34 at 11pm EST.
