  • This weekend, December 1st and 2nd, is the Small Press Book Fair at "The New York Center for Independent Publishing" (formerly the Small Press Center). I went a few years back and hope to go again. Whether I go or not depends on my inherent weekend laziness and how much time I spend with a visiting relative. Either way the line up is great with Ian Mckaye from Fugazi on Saturday speaking on culture and on Sunday Amiri Baraka and Hattie Gossett reading their poetry.
  • Although I'm sure tickets to this will be sold out by the time I finish this post, if you happen to be going to PenUltimate Lit on Wednesday(Rick Moody, Wesley Stace and Sufjan Stevens), then I kind of hate you. (I will be scouring Craigslist religiously for the next two days searching for a sucker willing to sell their tickets)
  • Friday December 7th Bon Iver is playing at the Bowery Ballroom. He's along the ranks of my new favorites. If you live in New York and you're free that Friday, the show will definitely be worth the trek in the cold (and possibly rain).
  • Beatrice has two articles by the author of Matrimony Joshua Henkin relating to characters and the narrative time line. Both are engaging and interesting short essays about the nature of his craft, which are worth a read whether you're a writer or an avid reader.
Thats it. Happy Monday.
