See Famous-For-DC Celebrities Ben Bradlee and Lee Woodruff
There is a use for both your encyclopedic knowledge of arcane Greek mythology and your shameful mental repository of Lee Woodruff-centric minutia this week in DC, in the context of author events. It's true!
Tuesday, May 5: Ooh, this is not just a reading of The Last Olympian, but a launch party, and not just any launch party, but one featuring a Greek mythology contest. Or, alternately, presumably food and alcohol. 4 PM. [Politics & Prose]
Lee "Bob" Woodruff is reading from her here's-how-I-raised-my-kids-themed memoir (momroir?) 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
Thursday, May 7: Ben Bradlee's inaugural scrapbook will be featured as part of a "Hook Book Event," though it's unclear if Bradlee will actually be there because wouldn't the website say as much, if that were going to be the case? In any event, you could go and find out. Adventures! [Hooks Books Events]
Friday, May 8: Christopher Buckley will read from his new book, Losing Mum and Pup, which has lately been excerpted and reviewed all over the place. Brush up on Buckley family voyeurism by checking out the family's insane Upper East Side duplex. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
Flotsametrics is the onomatopoeic study of things that float in the ocean. Want to know MORE? [Hooks Book Events]
Saturday, May 9: If biographies of historical figures are your "thing," go hear this new one about Chiang Kai-Shek—especially if Tuesday's Lee Woodruff: the Self-Described Good Mom Years salon doesn't satisfy your fix. 1 PM. [Politics & Prose]
