Your week at McNally Jackson:
Tonight!: Granta shows up to talk about Exit Strategies.
Tomorrow: I joked, while Dustin was building our Valentine’s Day display, that we should have all these lovely red love books about love and smooching, and then next to it, on a bare table, one lonely copy of Singular Pleasures. That has nothing to do with tomorrow’s event, which is in Spanish.
Wednesday: A conversation on Black Cool with Rebecca Walker, Margo Jefferson, and Miles Marshall Lewis.
Thursday: Stewart O’Nan will be here talking about his new novel, The Odds, which is about gambling and love. Also Niagara Falls. He’ll be talking to Ed Champion.
And next week: The Future of the Occupation with David Graeber (!) and a few others, Nafisa Hoodbhoy on Pakistan, Stacy Schiff and Rachel Syme on biography, and Toby Lester and Robert Krulwich crack the da Vinci code! Maybe.
