Happenings Elsewhere

Laila Lalami, author of the wonderful Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits and creator of MoorishGirl.com, writes about rich vs. poor in an essay at Powells.com. It’s thought provoking, so read it.

And the Morning News has another long Robert Birnbaum interview up today. This time, Uncle Bob speaks with Stuart Dybek, author of I Sailed with Magellan and Childhood and Other Neighborhoods: Stories.

Sara Ivy interviews Sherwin Nuland, whose new book Maimonides is the second in the Jewish Encounters series, a collaborative effort between Schocken and Nextbook. Sherwin Nuland will be appearing at Harvard Hillel on October 11th at 6:30pm for those interested.

    Thanks so much for posting that essay link. As a writer, I try to find out what’s hot in the literary scene so I can adjust my writing accordingly for marketing. I’m going to repost this on my own website.
