The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, March 16th – March 22nd

Another weeks worth of literary events in New York City. This week, Kazuo Ishiguro is making the rounds (!!!). A friend told me about Books of Wonder, and I now have some children’s events added to the list…. not to mention the opportunity to see David Levithan twice… (he’s one of the author’s in the lalapalooza of Young Adult authors signing on Sunday)

Not to mention that little RuPaul event at the NYPL which all my friends are excited about….
