This coming Thursday, May 16th Bill Whiting will be giving a reading of his recently published memoir, An Early Work Late in Life at the Rochester Memorial Art Gallery at 500 University Avenue, Rochester, New York 14620. The reading/signing is free with museum admission, and starts at 5:30pm.
An Early Work Late in Life is the true story of an exceptionally talented young artist named Daniel Arthur Allen, and how one of his mysterious little jewel-like paintings was rediscovered in the vault of The Rochester Memorial Art Gallery nearly four decades after his untimely death.
Told through the lens of a lover’s older eyes, An Early Work Late in Life takes place in the late 1960s and early 1970s when the sexual revolution, gay liberation and anti-Vietnam War protests made everyday life anything but predictable. Sometimes raucous and funny, sometimes heartbreaking, this memoir is ultimately a tribute to a wonderful, quirky, gentle young man who might have been a little too good for this world—and who believed he could exit this life and move on to a better one all on his own.
