The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, November 17th to November 23rd

Another week’s worth of literary events in New York City…. but I feel very un-literary, because the only author I know, besides the obvious celebrities, is Garth Stein who wrote the wonderful Art of Racing in the Rain.

    1. Honestly, it has a lot more to do with our schedules and what venues will be more understanding of us bringing a baby… My daughter has a reputation of being a well behaved baby at the nearest Barnes & Noble, so there’s less sneering & it tends to win out these days!
