Amy is coming back to Long Island.
The Emmy-award winning actress and comedian Amy Schumer, who was raised in Rockville Centre, will come to Book Revue in Huntington to promote her book, “The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo,” on Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. A limited number of tickets will go on sale Aug. 4 at 9:30 a.m., at the store or by telephone at 631-271-1442. Tickets are $28 plus tax, and entitle the ticket holder to a copy of the book. The event is a book signing only.
“The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo” goes on sale August 16. Schumer will do a launch event that evening at Barnes & Noble in Manhattan’s Union Square, followed by a signing at Word bookstore in Jersey City on Aug. 17.
Schumer’s book deal made news when it was announced last September. At the time, Entertainment Weekly reported that Schumer was paid $8 million-$10 million after an auction for the book. The book follows on the heels of Schumer’s Emmy win for her Comedy Central show, “Inside Amy Schumer,” and last summer’s box-office hit, “Trainwreck.”
