The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, December 8th to December 14th

My apologies for the formatting this week… like people in the industry (who seem to have really cut back on events to make room for alll those tree lightings going around the city), I have less time and won’t be able to get this out until tomorrow if I make it look “nice” (okay, just “nicer) Since most everything happens tonight, that didn’t seem like the greatest idea.

This week, I am dying to see that discussion os bi-raciality in Sci-Fi and Harry Potter, although I doubt I’ll make it… I’m crossing my fingers that it’s one of those library events they kindly put out on podcasts for us later…
