Monday, April 11 (tonight!) at 7 pm, Ronnie Hess at Boswell.
Tuesday, April 12, 7 pm, Anne Lamott at Alverno's Wehr Hall, which I've learned is 3400 South 43rd Street, for Imperfect Birds. But I just talked all about this on Friday?
One day I'm going to have to take some pictures of the mailing facility for the blog, if you're allowed to. It's rather fascinating, particularly as it is, at this point, set up for more mail volume than actually occurs. What it must have been like in the heyday--yet another thing for which to be nostalgic.
And one final note on events passed. An unspecified semi-local author's book whose newest collection of stories didn't sell as well as he'd hoped. It's got a cartoonish jacket. It is speculative, an area in which he hadn't previously published. And the book is over $25 for a paperback. That price point is out of bounds for all but your best friends. Sometimes I do wish authors would ask our opinion ahead of time. There's no way that book couldn't have been published at $20, even print on demand. Once it's done, there's nothing to say, alas. But now I have another $24.95 paperback fiction event book on the schedule. This is the last we shall say of this.
