My Salinger Year author Joanna Rakoff visits with J. Courtney Sullivan on 6/15, and Dean Bakopoulos presents his new novel, Summerlong, with Emma Straub on 6/23.

Afraid you'll miss something? You can get text message reminders for events. We solemnly swear you'll receive no more (and sometimes less) than one lovingly handcrafted text per day.
