The Brooklyn Book Festival is happening this Sunday, Sept. 13 and features an amazing line-up. BOMB will be there with our own event, as will be many past BOMB interviewees: Paul Auster, Jonathan Lethem and Mary Gaitskill (also interviewed 1990) in conversation, Colson Whitehead, A.M. Homes, Richard Price, Francine Prose, Cornelius Eady and Paul Muldoon.There will also be a panel discussion on the late, great Mahmoud Darwish. For those who cannot make it, there is Colm Tóibín‘s excellent new novel Brooklyn. Across the Atlantic in London, Richard Nelson has adapted Nabakov’s Lolita into a 90-minute monologue at the National Theatre. A flurry of gallery openings the next few days: Kara Walker at Sikkema Jenkins, Allen Frame at Gitterman Gallery, Maya Lin and Sol LeWitt at PaceWildenstein, Jessica Stockholder at the Klaus von Nichtssagend Gallery and Mike Kelley and Michael Smith at Sculpturecenter.
