Hi! My name is Sharon Glassman.
I’m an author, a musician, a journalist and stage performer.
In my new show, BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN, LIVE!, I read and sing to you from my novel with songs, BLAME IT ON HOBOKEN. It’s a funny, brainy story about following your dreams – no matter how crazy they sound to the rest of the world. Set in Sinatra’s hometown. But the story’s universal.
I perform chapters and songs from HOBOKEN in 60-to-90 minute live episodes. You can enjoy one of them, some of them or all of them, like a full season of a TV show.
On this site, you can:
BOOK ME to perform for your book club, school, office, house concert, library or special event.
