The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, February 2nd – February 8th

The weather might not be, but the literary events in New York City are definitely heating up. (My apologies for the pun!) Honestly, though, my wife and I are so excited for Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler (go fellow- albeit more successful- Wes alum!) and Nick Hornby that we kind of skimmed over much of the list!
