The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, February 9th – February 15th

Happy Valentine’s Day! Time to run out and buy something good to read for Saturday, because even literary folks are too busy to have events that day. (Kidding, I am sure they either hate it as much as you or just already booked tickets to a V-Day live performance somewhere)

Also, more importantly- two separate chances to see Matt Groening… another chance for me to (miss?) Emma Straub….
