The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, December 1st to December 7th

The weekly roundup of free or cheap literary events  in New York City!

Well, Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House clearly does not want anyone to go anywhere else for their literary events this week! Maybe I just didn’t notice previous weeks, but it seems like they have extra going on this week!

For people who really want to find out more about that Jeff Koons exhibit that’s been all the rage over the city might want to check the man out in person this Monday.

Oh yeah, and for people like me, they grouped together Stephanie Perkins, Rainbow Rowell, Holly Black, Gayle Forman, Jenny Han, David Leviathan, Kelly Link, Matt de la Pena and Kiersten White all into one panel. Okay, I’ve only heard of half of them, but those half I like. (I’m smelling a holiday gift binge-buy there)
