News

Death row is so popular right now, in fictions. It's like the new working as an assistant to a magazine editor or post-9/11 inquiries into Meanings of Things. So go hear two authors talk about their new death row books, plus a couple economics suggestion handbooks things because that's still going on too isn't it?


Monday: This Juan Cole guy has this idea that the US, as in of America, would benefit from recognizing that the Muslim population is heterogeneous. Uh, okay, Juan Cole, or would you prefer "Barack Obama"? 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Tuesday: Ooh, Life Sentences—this one's a mystery book, in which some person or other goes missing, and time on death row is running out! Or maybe it's not! Who knows? That is the mystery part, probably. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Wednesday: Another death row thing! It's called A Saint on Death Row, and it uses the case of this guy, Dominique Green, to problematize (look: college!) our justice system. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

This new book called The Power of the Purse is about shopping in an environmentally conscious way. Is publishing a book made out of tree paper really the most environmentally conscious thing to do? This would be an important question to ask, at a Q&A. [Hooks Books Events]

Celebrity intellectual/Financial Times guy Martin Wolf has a new book called Fixing Global Finance. How opportunistic. [Hooks Books Events]

Thursday: Jurisprudence wunderkind Jedediah Purdy will stop by Politics & Prose to talk about freedom and how it relates to self-awareness. This, like everything else lately, also contributed to the "little situation with the economy" if you know what I mean. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Friday: A book called The Least Worst Place could obviously only be about Gitmo, or possibly Wasilla, if it were meant ironically? Go hear about the prison in its formative Caribbean years (mostly 2002). 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Saturday: Mary Pipher, who wrote that book 4 gals called Ophelia Speaks, will be at Politics & Prose with a new book about growing up in Nebraska. 1 PM. [Politics & Prose]
