Barneys, Nobility

At 5:30 tomorrow evening I will stand somewhere inside the Barnes and Noble at the corner of State and Jackson in downtown Chicago, and I will read. The Chicago Reader already knows as much. Will…there…be…a Starbucks there? I presume yes there will. Also, I have offered my current students a tiny little bit of extra credit if they show up. So if you see them, be sure to ask how DeLillo’s uses of “aura” in WN differ from Benjamin’s, and have them provide four examples NOT including the barn scene. Then order a latte.
