So every once in a while I actually get to read fiction.
I haven't had the opportunity for years now.
I distinctly remember taking 3 days off from everything in November of 2005.
Jonathan Safar Foer kidnapped me with
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
After I finished it I wrote him a love letter. Not the same kind of love letter I would write for Chan Ho Park- but more a letter of gratitude and admiration.
I never mailed it.
I still have it.
and I THINK I will get to give it to him tomorrow night.
This just came in my inbox....
Reminder that this week the Raven Society* is having an exciting event!
Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 10, please join us at the Rose Tattoo Café for Happy Hour at 5:30 before the Jonathan Safran Foer lecture at the Library at 7:30. (also author of everything is illuminated)
There will be reserved seating available for everyone who attends the happy hour.
