Your week at McNally Jackson:

Tonight!: The Bridge is an ongoing (and by “ongoing” I mean it rules and it’s ongoing) series devoted to literature in translation. Tonight we’ll have Jonathan Cohen and Daniel Borzutzky. Cohen recently put together Word of Mouth, a collection of William Carlos Williams’ (or Bill Carlos Bill, as his friends knew him) translations from the Spanish, and Burzutzky has translated a number of Chileans.

Tomorrow: We will be closed so we can count all the books in the store. Literally every book.

Thursday: Shalom “Lana Del Rey:Lips::Shalom Auslander:Hair" Auslander (catchy nickname, no?) will be talking to the redoubtable Jessa Crispin of Bookslut about Hope: A Tragedy.

Friday: First, read this profile of Andre Dubus III. Then come hear him talk to John Burnham Schwartz about Townie. Easy.
