Thanks to everyone who came to the Brooklyn by the Book Michael Chabon event last night. There were hundreds of people at Congregation Beth Elohim! Meredith Walters did a wonderful job interviewing Chabon. Coming up next in the series: Diane Ravitch in conversation with David Denby on 10/8 and Donna Tartt in conversation with Maud Newton on 10/29. Both events start at 7:30pm!

Earlier this week I met Judy Blume at a conference for booksellers. She is a rock star. Have I mentioned that I love my job?
