SAILOR TWAIN Fulfilled! Special Exhibit!
Dear generous backers,
The last pledge gifts have gone out! Thank you one and all for your kind support in this adventure.
Sailor Twain, or the Mermaid in the Hudson is out everywhere now, and I hope you'll share it with friends.
But there's more to tell! If you're in New York at the end of this month, be sure to join me for a rare event!
Red carpet! Sailor Twain Wines! Exhibit opening with special presentation at the New York Public Library's main branch! It's on October 25th, and I hope many of you can make it. It's totally free and a memorable evening is guaranteed for all! Period costumes welcome! The exhibit will run six months, but opening night will be one not to miss...
And speaking of costumes—there will be many! See below, the invitation that went out to millions of Steampunks, courtesy of the indefatigable Evelyn Kriete, of Jaborwhalky fame...
Many thanks, all of you, for sharing in this journey.
