I just glanced at the Event schedule for April here at the Harvard Book Store. Man, do we have some good stuff coming up!
* Friday, April 1st, Ian McEwan
* Wednesday, April 6th, Jonathan Safran Foer (who has been getting lots of posts lately)
* Tuesday, April 12th, Camille Paglia
* Wednesday, April 13th, Jeanette Winterson
* Monday, April 25th, Ruth Reichl
I don’t know if I can make it to all of them. There’s a lot more too. Sorry if it seems like I am just plugging my store. I don’t write this blog for work. It’s just my own personal site, but I can’t help but mention this stuff.
Just picked up the Paglia book. Despite the title and the hot-pink cover and Paglia’s reputation, it’s a straightforward dissection of 40+ poems she likes. Sounds interesting if you want to know what all the fuss about Wallace Stevens and William Carlos Williams is about.
Thanks Bill. Let me know if you like it. I have a galley, but honestly, it’s pretty low on my TBR pile.
Plug away! I love the Harvard Book Store. It’s one of the things I miss most about Cambridge. I used to live in Quincy House so I would stop by at least once a day during my undergraduate years. Plus, the store is across from my favorite entrance to the Harvard Yard (who could resist “Enter to Grow in Wisdom”?)
I wish I were there (though I do so hate winter!)
