Friday Night, Book Cellar

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

Many thanks to Patrick Somerville for inviting me along for The Pale King release event Friday night at Chicago’s perfect Book Cellar. Details here, but know that Adam Levin is reading, he behind the gigantic and unanimously adored The Instructions, and Marcus Sakey, a man I do not know from Adam(s) but look forward to meeting, and Jon Baskin, whose essay on Wallace I taught the shit out of a year ago in my large, terrifying Infinite Jest class at SAIC.

The event is free and will surely be full of laughter and insight, our Chicago take on events scheduled around the country to celebrate this rather phenomenal piece of literature (see extensive thoughts on the book below). Hope to see you.
