Today, and tonight

Sorry, guys. Busy week. But I’ll be at Housing Works tonight at 7 p.m. for a discussion about blogging and book reviewing, and “what happens when the two intersect.” Lizzie Skurnick (Old Hag), Laurie Muchnick (Newsday), and Frank Wilson (The Philadelphia Inquirer and Books, Inq.) are the other panelists. John Freeman of the National Book Critics Circle will moderate.

In the meantime, please enjoy the Slaughterhouse Five excerpt Duncan Black (Atrios) read for the ACLU’s Banned Books Week event.
