Your week at McNally Jackson:
Tonight! 7pm: Ben Marcus—author of Flame Alphabet—talks to John Freeman of Granta. As my cotweeter Dustin cotweeted this morning, “Ben Marcus wrote a book about spoken words making people ill and then expects you to come to his reading here tonight.” Heyo!
Also tonight! At the Crosby Street Hotel!: Roy Blount Jr. talks about the brothers Marx and screens their great Duck Soup. Is it too late for tickets? I don’t know! You should call the hotel: 212-226-6400.
Tuesday, 7pm: Susan Cain wrote a book about introverts, and I’d tell you about it, but I have to go into this room alone to pretend to be a monk and quietly keep to myself. She’ll be talking—audibly, hopefully—to Naomi Wolf.
Thursday, 7pm: Liz Moore will be here to discuss Heft, her new novel about a very large man in Brooklyn, with Mary Gordon.
