Artist Sophie Calle will be in New York on Nov. 7 to sign copies of The Address Book, one of her infamous early works. The book compiles a series of essays Ms. Calle wrote in 1983 for the French paper Liberation, based on an address book she found in the streets of Paris. Rather than return the book to its owner, one Pierre D., she called his contacts and asked them about him with the object of “[getting] to know him through his friends and acquaintances.” The Address Book, now being published for the first time in its entirety in English by Siglio Press, is set to be released on Oct. 31. [Update: Wed. Nov. 7, 4:30 p.m.] This event has been rescheduled and will now take place on Saturday Nov. 10 at 6 p.m.
