What to Do, What to Do?

by Ron Hogan

There's so much going on tonight in New York from a literary standpoint. A.J. Jacobs and Dave King are reading at The Dekk in Tribeca, while Jorie Graham, Glyn Maxwell, and Charles Simic celebrate the tenth anniversary of National Poetry Month at the New School's Lang Center. Afschineh Latifi and Annie Nigh Ward read from their books at KGB, and René Steinke and Minna Proctor will be at Brooklyn's Book Court. You could also check out the International Center, where novelists Susan Choi and Akhil Sharma will be reading with memoirist Azadeh Moaveni as part of Immigrant History Week. (For starting times, check the websites; the International Center event isn't on their site, but starts at 7:30.)

And tomorrow's going to be just as fabulous. I'm probably going to go see Amy Hempel and Francine Prose at the New School, but Gary Shteyngart'll be taking part in KGB's "Novel Jews" with Joshua Cohen, and Steinke's taking part in Cupcake with Paula Kamen. Meanwhile, the Women's National Book Association has a special panel on book clubs, "the new cottage industry of the book business," with a panel that includes Adriana Trigiani.
