Susan Sontag, David Ignatius, And Brooklyn, Right Here In DC


It is like college here in DC this week: there is an opportunity for free food that can be capitalized upon by pretending to be interested in the publication of something—plus a bonus Susan Sontag salon. Plus, that quintessential collegiate particular: fictitious tales about Brooklyn!

Monday, May 18th: Go hear about new fiction about Brooklyn and its denizens that is called Brooklyn. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Tuesday, May 19th: Science! Religion! You'd think conflating these two would be problematic but maybe not? 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

Woodruffs Lee and Bob talk about Lee and Bob Woodruff, if for whatever reason you're interested. [Hooks Books Events]

Wednesday, May 20th: Fareed Zakaria's slightly less famous friend David Ignatius takes his new Iran fan fiction to Politics & Prose. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]

There will be a launch for a new DC-themed cook book, which all but guarantees free food. 6 PM. [Busboys & Poets]

Thursday, May 21st: Check out Philip Lopate rousing debate about which is better: Sontag's essays or that, like, one piece of fiction she wrote that one time that wasn't very good at all. 7 PM. [Politics & Prose]
