This Friday night Small World Books will host a gathering in celebration of the 10th anniversary of "I Am a Naked Person," a short and sweetly humorous illustrated story about being naked by Rochester-based artist Ray Ray Mitrano. The party also serves as a tour kick off — Mitrano will travel throughout the summer to various venues, events, and gatherings across the country. The Small World gathering will feature an interactive reading, potluck (bring a dish!), a bonfire in the garden, and guest accompaniment from other local artists.
"I Am a Naked Person" 10th anniversary tour kickoff takes place at Small World Books, 425 North Street, on Friday, June 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. $5 suggested donation. More info and opportunity to support Mitrano at rayraymitrano.com.
