I’ve managed to catch up on some reading today:
Michael Dirda answered reader questions about bookstores at the Washington Post (my store gets mentioned several times!).
Dan Wickett, who must never sleep, interviewed Ron Rash, author of Saint at the River and also winner of the O. Henry award for his short story “Speckled Trout”.
Dan also interviewed independent bookseller Corey Mesler, who owns and operates Burke’s Books in Memphis.
And he also ran a panel with more bloggers.
Robert Birnbaum interviewed Tom Bissell, author of the just released collection of stories God Lives in St. Petersburg and Other Stories and Chasing the Sea: Lost Among the Ghosts of Empire in Central Asia.
