The Dust Jacket: The Weekly List, March 30th – April 5th

Another week of author events in New York City… the week of T.C.Boyle. 3 separate chances to catch him while he’s in town! Oh, and it turns out (unbeknownst to me) the NYPL has restarted its Books at Noon program- so I missed Colson Whitehead last week. (Okay, so I had heard him speak a few years ago, but I had really enjoyed listening!)

P.S. If I were a better parent, I would go to that baby food thing, but…
