In the name of Persuasion

. . . I urge you all to go on over to Skylight Books tonight and see George Saunders read from his new collection of short stories, In Persuasion Nation. Mr. Saunder's work is some of the greatest stuff out there and we as readers have the pleasure of hearing him read tonight. If anyone goes, please let me know how it is. I have to get my car out of the shop after work, so that's going to be fun. And while you're at it you should read what's happening over at the LBC. Gina Frangello's essay (author of the book, My Sister's Continent ) about (polite Sex and the City) is being discussed and I'll be speaking with Gina very soon about her book in an interview that will appear over at Sue Henderson's blog this June. Keep your eyes open! In the meantime, enjoy the Mother's Day weekend and be nice to your mom!
