I am ready to say goodbye to the heat and welcome in the end of summer, cooler air, and the busy schedules of fall.
This month marks the release of Stephen Elliot’s The Adderall Diaries in paperback. This is exciting because now you can buy a cheaper, more travel-friendly version of Elliot’s “superb, sprawling meta-memoir;” and Stephen is our friend and we like what he’s got going on over at The Rumpus.
Also this month is the 2010 Brooklyn Book Festival. On Sunday, September 12th, authors and book lovers will take over Brooklyn Borough Hall Courtroom, St. Francis College Auditorium, and the Brooklyn Historical Society. The list of authors who will speak is immense; this is a tiny taste of some of the memoirists who will be there: Steve Almond, Piper Kerman, Roseanne Cash, Neal Pollack, Stephen Elliot, Sarah Silverman, and many more.
