Molly Ringwald to D.C. for Book Reading

Looking at the fall lineup of appearances at Sixth & I, organizers decided to spin them as a “Breakfast Club” series of appearances with the brain, the athlete, the basket case, the criminal, the princess, and actress Molly Ringwald, who starred in the 1985 film. Ringwald appears on Sept. 12 for her literary debut, When it Happens to You: A Novel in Stories.

The Brain: Hanna Rosin, Senior Editor at The Atlantic, for The End of Men: And the Rise of Women. She’ll appear at the synagogue with her husband, Slate Editor David Plotz, on Sept. 11 for a “battle of the sexes-style meeting of the minds.”

The Athlete: Chris Cleave for Incendiary on Oct. 3.

The Basket Case: Daniel Smith for Monkey Mind on Oct. 15.

The Princess: Stacy London, star of What Not to Wear, for her memoir, The Truth About Style, on Oct. 4.

The Criminals: Brothers David and Peter Rothbart. A release says the duo is embarking on a 75-city 10th Anniversary tour to celebrate Davy’s book of personal essays, My Heart Is an Idiot, Peter’s album, You Are What You Dream, and a brand new issue of FOUND. The tour stops at Sixth & I on Sept. 24.
