Batter Up
Summer Is Here. It's Official.

Erdrich (again) and Mason

To continue with baseball metaphors...Batting third and fourth for the 92nd Street Y's 2005-2006 reading series are Louise Erdrich and Bobbie Ann Mason. While it's more than likely that Erdrich will read from her works for adults (versus her Birchbark House books), she and Ms. Mason ought to be a team worth hearing on September 26th.  We're assuming Bobbie Ann Mason will read from An Atomic Romance, her latest. You know Bobbie Ann Mason. She's the Kentuckian, published in The New Yorker, who gets the  "K-Mart fiction" epithet  hurled at her on occasion. But not by me. I like her short stories especially.

Billy Collins and Garrison Keillor lead off  with readings from their poetry anthologies on September 19th . Take the #4, #5, or #6 train to Manhattan's Upper East Side for the series at the 92nd Street Y.
