Be Like Mark and Me, Get Your Face on C-SPAN

by Ron Hogan

...and you don't even have to fly to Chicago to do it. Although you do have to come to New York City, but what the hell, it's a holiday weekend.

This Sunday, the Strand (located just below the protest epicenter of Union Square) will host C-SPAN's cameras as the long-awaited second floor finally opens for business, creating space for even more miles of books. Wait, you say, that's hardly exciting enough to justify cable news coverage...? Well, Art Spiegelman, Harold Evans, Peter Osnos, Amy Goodman, and a slew of others are going to be there. You could even tell Richard Brookhiser what you thought of his review of Rik Hertzberg's essay collection, if you wanted!
