I am going with Moonrat to see Umberto Eco!
New York Public Library (42nd and 5th)
Nov. 15, 7:00 pm, $15
This means I have to start reading The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, which I have on my stack of to-read books. Or pick up The Name of the Rose.
Btw, Moonrat, [twitter twitter], if you are still hoping to get Orhan Pamuk to sign your book, he will also be at the New Yorker Festival, signing his essay collection at 5 on Saturday (Oct. 6, I believe).
