Join us for a meet and greet with Toddy Smith and Darren Nuzzo, who are celebrating their new book I’ll Give You a Dollar if you Consider This Art (Tallfellow Press). This event will consist of a book signing and photo op–there will be no author talk. Tickets come with a paperback copy of the book. Hardcovers will be available to purchase in limited quantities. The event will take place at Brookline Booksmith starting at 6pm.
Toddy Smith is a performer, writer and leading digital content creator (and member of the Vlog Squad) who has amassed a following of over 4 million adoring fans. Toddy uses his unique take on storytelling to share a glimpse into his and his friends’ lives through vlogs and other comedic content across his social channels. Toddy has ties with Calvin Klein (ambassador of their 2019 Coachella campaign), and Smirnoff (recurring face of the brand). He has a lifestyle clothing brand, Gothic Mochas. He hopes to continue to use his platform to stop bullying while encouraging people not to take themselves too seriously, and to inspire fun.
Darren Nuzzo is a writer and performer from Southern California. His fiction work has been anthologized in esteemed literary journals and his articles have appeared in numerous University newspapers. Off the page, his stand-up routines have been seen by his continuously growing fanbase at various open mics, and the occasional lingering patron. Darren built a cult social media following through his lengthy literary captions accompanying various photos of himself. As a fitness guru, sustainability advocate, self-proclaimed wizard, and hippy at heart, Darren brings a unique outlook to his literature.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
