Meet the Writers
Author Dito Montiel joined veteran punk rocker Jesse Malin at Upstairs at the Square in October for a high-energy evening of reading, rockin' out, and tales of NYC back in the day. Montiel discussed his urban memoir, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (adapted into the acclaimed film starring Robert Downey Jr.), and to complement Montiel's streetwise stories, Malin pumped up the crowd by performing songs from his latest CD, The Heat.
