A literary evening with an outsider in New York
So, tonight I'm going to be at that bookstore in New York and talk about my book. That feels pretty good. I guess because it is a very different world than I'm used to. Not the bookstore, but the literary world. I haven't spent that much time in it. I don't think I've ever even met a professor of media studies before, so that should be intersting. As far as the literary world goes, this little video clip kind of demonstrates my feelings for it:
I know you may wonder what I'm smoking, but hey, it's a feeling. The video shows "Dancing at the cafe - Bande a Part (AKA Band of Outsiders)" and I guess I do feel like an outsider right now. I don't really mind. That means I can speak my mind.
Fun part is, more literary types, like Lauren Cerand, are now rounding up people to come to this event. She writes this:
TUESDAY 1.2: At McNally Robinson, “Join Mark Crispin Miller and Peter Rost for a discussion of Rost’s The Whistleblower. McNally Robinson Booksellers is restarting their First Tuesdays political series, hosted by Mark Crispin Miller. The goal of the series is tohighlight issues-oriented titles that may be a little too dangerous to receive a great deal of mainstream media attention, and bring the authors into conversation with their customers. 7:00pm.
I'm just not sure of what to wear. Corporate suit--or literary jeans and sweater. Maybe a compromise?
Jacket with black turtleneck?
So many decisions in just one day.
