Notes from the desk of Indigo Vales:

Looking forward to my first visit to the Gramercy Theatre.  The New Yorker magazine is holding a New Yorker Festival this weekend; many wonderful guest speakers and performances, one of which will be a conversation with Junot Diaz.  I was intrigued by the articles he wrote for the New Yorker and a dear friend recommended him highly. I finished “Drown” and found it to be a story I could not put down, an absolute page turner which is a difficult thing to do when one has to get up early the next morning and attend to adult responsibilities.  It’s tough putting a great book down, but I managed.  Looking forward to reading his other novels soon.  I hope to learn much from the conversation at the Gramercy, and the book signing he will do downtown later at McNally Jackson Books.

In other notes, I have one eye on a hurricane in the Atlantic…and one eye here at home.
