Houstonians: Inprint Brown Reading Series

If you live in Houston or anywhere near Houston, you have a great year ahead of you. Although Inprint has not yet announced the 2008-2009 reading series line-up on its website, I just realized Brazos Bookstore has already listed the events on its website.

This is an amazing schedule! Season tickets are only $70, or individual tickets for individual readings are usually just $5. The rest of the world should be jealous!
  • September 15th: Junot Díaz (the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao)
  • October 6th: Anne Enright (the author of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel The Gathering) and Ann Patchett (the author of Bel Canto and Run)
  • November 10th: Natasha Trethewey (poet) and John Edgar Wideman (the author of Philadelphia Fire and The Homewood Trilogy)
  • January 12th: Geraldine Brooks (the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel March and The People of the Book)
  • February 16th: Ha Jin (the author of A Free Life and Waiting)
  • March 9th: Richard Price (the author of Lush Life)
  • April 20th: Bill Bryson (the author of The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid)
