Historical Heartthrobs and Their Heat


historical-heartthrobs-50-timeless-crushes-from-cleopatra-to-camus-by-kelly-murphy-with-hallie-frydKelly Murphy, who has written more than a few stories for us here at Brooklyn Based, presents her book Historical Heartthrobs: 50 Timeless Crushes–from Cleopatra to Camus at powerHouse Arena on Jan. 14. The book profiles 50 heartthrobs from Bruce Lee to Pablo Picasso, complete with OkCupid-like profiles and a “heat factor” ranking how crush-worthy each individual really is (kind of like a modern day Hot or Not?). Murphy will be hanging out with Vice Magazine‘s Brian Moylan, and comedian Sue Smith for a discussion of historical hotties and their heat. How would you wine and dine Albert Camus?  Or maybe Lord Byron’s more your cup of tea? RSVP, as this is more than likely to fill up fast.
