If you're in New York City and have time available on Tuesday evening, October 27, you may want to check out this event at Columbia University:
"Join Ilan Stavans, editor of The Library of America's new anthology Becoming Americans: Four Centuries of Immigrant Writing, and two contributors, award-winning writers Jhumpa Lahiri and Gary Shteyngart, for an evening of readings and discussion. Open to public."
Sounds wonderful, but unfortunately I can't get there. If any of our readers are going, please report back!
