Vroman's Authors in the Press
Several authors for whom we'll be hosting events have popped up in the press these past few days.
- You've probably seen the Janet Maslin review of James Frey's Bright Shiny Morning. I'm happy to report that Bright Shiny Morning is a much better read than Ms. Maslin's review. James Frey will be at the Whisky A-Go Go Thursday night at 7:30, along with metal band Black Tide and author Josh Kilmer-Purcell. Vroman's and Book Soup will be selling Frey's newest novel. Come check it out. (You may also want to check back here for some special Frey-related content. Hint hint.)
- The new episode of Titlepage is up. It doesn't feature any authors with upcoming events at Vroman's, but one of the panelists is Nam Le, who I had the pleasure of knowing when I lived in Iowa City (and who is one hell of a card player). While checking out the episode, I was psyched to see that Daniel Menaker, host of Titlepage, recommends The Drunkard's Walk, by Leonard Mlodinow, who will be at Vroman's on Wednesday, June 11 at 7 pm. This book looks fascinating, as it examines chance, probability, and the role of luck in life. Check it out.
- Apparently Barbara Walters has a new book out. Nobody told me. (She'll be at Vroman's to sign Audition: A Memoir on Wednesday, May 14 at 7 pm. Check out our website for a complete rundown of the event's guidelines).
