Famous Authors at the Smithsonian
Feel like you have missed all of the famous author readings this semester? Although there are only a few authors visiting GW in the next coming months (Margaret Atwood will be doing a dramatization of her latest novel The Year of the Flood at Lisner Auditorium this Friday, October 30th. Tickets are as low as $10 and still available!), GW is not the only venue to get your book signed.
The Smithsonian also does a "Connect with the Authors" series. Just within the next month nine authors (ranging from chef Lidia Bastianich to biologist/TV star Jeff Corwin) are coming. This group also includes Nobel Prize in Literature winner Orhan Pamuk, author of My Name is Red, coming on November 23, and eventually Tracy Chevalier (although information on her reading has not been posted yet.) Books will be for sale at each event and tickets range from $13-25.
