New York Times Op-Ed columnist and former drama critic Frank Rich will appear at New York's Barnes and Noble (2289 Broadway at 82nd St.) Feb. 11 at 7:30 PM. He will be reading from his recent memoir "Ghost Light," published by Random House in 2000, and released in paperback Oct. 2001.

"Ghost Light" explores Rich's boyhood, when troubles at home — including his parents' broken marriage — made him easy prey for the excitement, color and power of the make believe of theatre. Rich, who would eventually become New York's most powerful and respected and/or loathed critic between 1980-1993, was raised in the Washington DC area and caught national tours of musicals and plays at the National Theatre, where he was hired as a ticket taker.

Rich will be appearing with his wife, Alex Witchell, former theatre columnist and currently style and culture reporter for the Times, who has just published a novel, "Me Times Three."

Both readings will be followed by a book signing.
