I’m so excited because I just got the Arts & Letters Live schedule. This is a yearly literary festival hosted by the Dallas Museum of Art. I used to volunteer as an usher and in return I got to see the programs for free. That’s how I discovered the wonderful David Sedaris and Carol Shields actually. Unfortunately, tickets to the event aren’t cheap, each author presentation is about $36. Maybe I need to look into that volunteer thing again.
Anyway know what else I got in the mail? My gift subscription to The New York Review of Books. I see a lot of non-fiction books in this journal. Speaking of, I am thinking of proposing a non-fiction challenge as several of you have said you’d be interested in one but I promise not to start anything in the next several months. I’m a bit overwhelmed with challenges myself right now.
Other Christmas gifts received were 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, a Magnetic Poetry Calendar, a subscription renewal to Bound & Lettered and a gift card to Half Price Books. Guess where I’ll be this weekend?
Oh and tomorrow I’ll let you know who won the three library pocket books. So much excitement!
