LOS ANGELES — Robert Rosen is celebrating the U.S. publication of his investigative memoir "Beaver Street: A History of Modern Pornography," at the Killarney Rose, an Irish bar on Beaver Street in New York at 7 p.m. EST this Saturday.

The event will take place on Bloomsday, the day named for Leopold Bloom, protaganoist of the groundbreaking James Joyce novel "Ulysses," which takes place in Dublin on June 16 and which was declared pornographic and banned in the U.S. when excerpts were first published here in 1920.

Rosen and special guests will read provocative passages from "Beaver Street" on Saturday while "characters" from the book will be present. Recording artists HooP and Mary Lyn Maiscott will provide live music.

"Beaver Street: A History of Modern Pornography" is an in-depth account of Rosen's career in the adult industry. Rosen said that he got the inspiration for the book title from wandering the streets of Manhattan 10 years ago when he looked up at a street sign and saw that he was on the corner of Beaver and Broad. He realized that he not only found his tltle, but also an ideal venue for the publication party as the Killarney Rose is located at 80 Beaver St.

The book is now available in New York at Shakespeare's, McNally Jackson, St. Mark's Books and Barnes and Noble, and in all e-book formats at all online booksellers. It will also be available at the event.

RSVP to rrosen2727@nyc.rr.com.
