May Days At Book Culture

May 5, 2008 at 4:04 pm Leave a comment

Our events season slows down in the late spring and summer, but we do still have several on tap for May, June and possibly July. Our May events include tonight’s conversation with John T. Hamilton and Avital Ronell, who will be discussing Hamilton’s new book: Music, Madness and the Unworking of Language.

Also this week: on Thursday, Michael I. Meyerson will discuss his new release, Liberty’s Blueprint: How Madison and Hamilton Wrote the Federalist Papers, Defined the Constitution and Made Democracy Safe for the World. And on Sunday afternoon, something for the kids! Nina Jaffe returns with another storytelling session, this time highlighting The Golden Flower: A Taino Myth from Puerto Rico, which we have available for sale in both English and Spanish. Bring the whole family and celebrate Mother’s Day at this participatory cultural event.

Another event we are excited about hosting is Saree Makdisi at the end of the month, on May 29. He will be reading from and discussing his new book, Palestine Inside Out.

Please see our events page and children’s event page for more details. And mark your calenders for Book Culture’s biggest May Sale ever: May 16, 17 and 18th – almost everything in the store will be 20% off*!!

(*Excludes standard exceptions: periodicals, text editions, course adoptions.)
