JULY Booking Events: New York


Seeing as how we’re based in the Big Apple, the capital of the publishing world and a hot-stop for many author tours, I’ve decided to start posting a monthly list of author or book events at local bookstores, libraries, or parks.  I’ll try to keep it well updated throughout the month and will announce anything new on Twitter.

Be sure to send me any exciting events you hear about, since I know I’ll never be able to catch everything by myself!

Two events at McNally Jackson:

20th July: Nick Laird reading from his new novel 'Glover's Mistake'

27th July: Benjamin Nugent interviewed by Brant Rumble (Nugent's 'American Nerd' is worth a read, and Brant should make the discussion pretty humorous)
