JANUARY Book Events: New York

I'm sorry. I've slacked off on this monthly event update. I think I missed a couple months in there, but you were all too busy with the holidays to even notice, right?? Anyway, I'm getting back on track. Also, I have included all appearances at which you can stalk the Real Housewives of New York City because they apparently all have books now. However, I refuse to address the "countess" with the title Countess. She's not one.

I'd really like to go to the Mary Jo Bang reading, but alas I have volleyball which trumps that. I'll definitely be going to a Joshua Ferris reading though.

Kari said...

Yeah Sal, I want to go to Joshua Ferris too.

Salvatore said...

As long as I don't have a volleyball game, I'll be there. He has a couple of New York events.

You're lucky to be up there in the midst of all those bookish events.

Thanks for this list, Kari. I am out of town on business next week so looks like I will miss the Jan events but this is a great summary!
