Some Links, and a Correction
- Since we're all about accuracy here at the Vroman's Blog, I must point out that the list of books quoted in a post about Sarah Palin's book banning desires was fictional. No specific books were mentioned in her discussion with the Wasilla librarian, although such a discussion definitely took place: "But on Monday, Oct. 28, Emmons said Palin asked her outright if she could live with censorship of library books. This was during a weak when Palin was requesting resignations from all the city's department heads as a way of expressing loyalty."
- Robert Giroux, the "G" in FSG, has passed away at the age of 94. When I first started paying attention to who published what sort of books (probably about eight years ago), it became immediately apparent that FSG published the kind I liked.
- Some big political titles hit the shelves this week. In fact, I think I'm going to make a hot key for that phrase, since I imagine I'll be using it a lot in the coming months.
- To fans of the New England Patriots, don't despair -- rent the first season of "Friday Night Lights." (The Times Quad Blog is having an ongoing discussion of the Buzz Bissinger book the movie and series is based on.)
