Tonight at 7 PM at McNally Jackson Bookstore C. Max Magee, one of the editors of the excellent The Late American Novel, and a few fine folks who contributed to the book, including The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet author Reif Larson, will be discussing the future of the novel. I will be there, taking notes for our first “Book Club,” a new feature in which our editors discuss a single work in depth over the course of a week. I’m proud to announce that our first “Book Club” will cover The Late American Novel and will begin next week. In the meantime, if you’re in New York, I can’t recommend this event highly enough — everyone on the panel has an interesting perspective on the future of the book. If you can’t make it to Manhattan, however, you should go see friend of Full Stop Emma Straub read at The Community Bookstore (also at 7 PM), which is a lovely place with a lovely cat where lovely people work and shop. I wish that I could split myself in two. But I can’t, so I will be sad and read the tweets of the aforementioned cat, Sir Sir Marjorie Lambshank, instead.
