Tompkins Corners Cultural Center will present Tad Crawford, who will speak about business/legal issues for artists and writers, money myths and misconceptions, and his novels, A Floating Life and On Wine-Dark Seas. Praised for “his refreshing style which brings surprise and fun back into fiction” (New York Journal of Books), Tad will discuss the unusual diversity of his writing (practical advice, mythology, fiction), his inspirations, and his creative process.
At a time when many artists and writers are experiencing grave career uncertainty, Tad’s Legal Guide for the Visual Artist, now updated and in its sixth edition, provides a comprehensive guide that addresses a myriad of new and complex issues. The “go-to” book for working artists and writers since 1977, it grew out of Tad’s experience teaching at the School of Visual Arts and serving as General Counsel for the Graphic Artists Guild, where he was active in advocating for artists’ rights.
Tad’s publishing company, Allworth Press, is a leading publisher of books on business for creators, personal finance, and entrepreneurship. As an author, lawyer (Columbia Law School), and publisher, Tad brings a deep and broad understanding not only of the creative process that brings a work to life but also the practical knowledge required to carry a completed work through to publication and successful marketing.
The talk will focus on Legal Guide for the Visual Artist, The Secret Life of Money, A Floating Life, and On Wine-Dark Seas: A Novel of Odysseus and His Fatherless Son Telemachus. Prior to the event, Tad’s books will be available at the Putnam Valley Library. They will also be offered at half price during the talk. Questions from the audience will be welcomed.
