Sunday News: MFA Readings in NYC and Lisa Marie's Book Gets a New Name

Good news for those of you living in NYC and envying the fast pace whirl of Madison literary life: this week there will be three, count 'em, three must-see readings: on Wednesday 5/19, former MFA Emma Straub reads with Dan Chaon at the Cakeshop; on Thursday 5/20, new MFA fiction grad Alyssa Knickerbocker reads with Josh Weil at BookCourt; and on Friday 5/21 Emma Straub reads with Gina Frangello at Word.

In other news, Lisa Marie Brodsky writes to say her forthcoming book of poems has had a title change and will now be titled The Sum of Our Burning. Heads up to everyone who was planning to put Motherlung (old title) on their book wish lists.
