Hey, folks, a quick announcement. The first is that there will be an extra Question of the Month on Monday so I can run my 2-part interview with the best literary agent in New York. Be sure to stop by!
What am I talking about, you ask?
There’s this thing called a Sony Reader, a little computer gadget, and you can download (or maybe upload) books on to it. Save trees. And so on. And Sony is running a campaign to both bring this product to your attention and to promote literacy by having this guy named Dave Farrow live in a window display and read from this Sony Reader for the entire month of October. For every page he reads (and he’s a known speed reader), Sony will donate an eBook library of 100 eBook classics to a school or education institution.
So where do I come in? Well, Dave needs to take breaks now and then; and on Tuesday, October 28th, at 1pm, I’ll be his break. I will be reading from Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. So stop by the store window at 445 5th Ave (5th Ave & 39th Street, across from the New York Public Library) in Manhattan and tap on the glass. Or stop by their website and see how you can help Sony promote literacy.
Thanks! And see you Monday with a brand new question!
