Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit turns its sky-eye on an event that brings together a short shelf of New Jersey writers for a night of readings and book signings.


Saturday’s program — dubbed “Beach Reads: Take Us With You” — promises a four-hour block of pure word-love. Curious readers can take in a murder mystery set in a Highland Park
movie house; vicariously tour the great cemeteries of the Garden State; learn how to speak “Bayonnease;” take a good long
look at our vintage nudist colonies; and
get a preview of organizer Helen Pike‘s latest, a Prohibition tale.

oRBit correspondent Dorothy Creamer has the table of contents for this local-organic event, going on at
the happening little Showroom in Asbury Park.

We then take it over to the Eatontown Playhouse, where the scrappy little storefront stage
hosts the world premiere of a new, original comedy by Jersey-guy playwright
Frank Van Syckel. We’ll tell you how a need to ad-lib and a penchant for
“working blue” led him to create the talk-TV satire called You Can’t Say That.

It’s all spelled out for you in the virtual pages of Red Bank oRBit.
