I surveyed the special guests and I have some answers: Bree McKenna will be reading Fear and Trembling by Amelie Nothomb. ("Best Belgian writer!" Bree says.) Emily Nokes is either reading Mick Jagger by Philip Norman, I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen by Sylvia Simmons, or Luck or Something Like It by Kenny Rogers. (I've got my money on Kenny Rogers.) I'm finishing up Every Love Story Is a Ghost Story by D. T. Max, the biography of David Foster Wallace that I really do not want to end, because it's so smart and I don't like the idea of what's coming. And you? What will you be reading?
More about the reading party right here. As usual, it's 6 pm to 9 pm, free, and all ages. And from 7 to 8 tonight, Will Bielawski will be playing harp. If you have not witnessed that yet, you're missing out.
