We have a great lineup of March author events this month beginning today with Chris Holmund, editor of The Ultimate Stallone Reader: Sylvester Stallone as Star, Icon, Auteur , discussing everything Sly at Smith College. Stallone and the Seven Sisters!
Speaking of Seven Sisters, Michael Yogg will be speaking about his new book Passion for Reality: The Extraordinary Life of the Investing Pioneer Paul Cabot at Wellesley Books on March 13th. Keeping it in New England, Thomas Doherty has two appearances in the region this month, including at the Maine Jewish Film Festival, to talk about his book Hollywood and Hitler, 1933-1939.
Closer to home, there are three very different, but three great events this month in NYC: Nancy Foner, editor of One Out of Three: Immigrant New York in the Twenty-First Century (March 5th at the Gotham Center); Richard Meyer on Ruan Ling-Yu: The Goddess of Shanghai (March 9 at the Brooklyn Public Library); and Maria Pia Lara will discuss her new book The Disclosure of Politics: Struggles Over the Semantics of Secularization at Book Culture on March 19th.
Finally, for the scientifically inclined, there are several great events, including H. H. Shugart’s appearance at the Virginia Festival of the Book to discuss his forthcoming book Foundations of the Earth: Global Ecological Change and the Book of Job .
