  1. Thanks so much for the heads up on these events! Have you been to any of the Bryant Park Word for Word events? some of the upcoming ones sound great! The Park is not far from the office so maybe I can sneak out on one of the upcoming Wednesdays!

  2. I've been to a few of them. It's great because you get to hear the authors speak. I'm hoping it doesn't rain tomorrow, although they have a rain venue.
    Anytime you can go, let me know and we'll meet up.
