Broadway & Politics Get Booked

Tonight at Greenlight Books in Brooklyn, Gail Collins will host a conversation with Rebecca Traister (Salon.com columnist and author of Big Girls Don’t Cry: Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama, and the Year That Changed Everything).

Last year we interviewed Traister about her work as a 21st Century political reporter. Here’s an excerpt: “I’m not a traditional political beat reporter … As soon as I would write something, I would get hundreds and sometimes thousands of people telling me what they thought. It helped me understand what the sentiment was out there, at least among the sector of people I was writing for.”

Welcome to our regular literary calendar. To get your event posted on our calendar, visit our Facebook Your Literary Event page.

In addition, Peter Filichia, author of Broadway Musicals: The Biggest Hit & the Biggest Flop of the Season–1959 to 2009, will be signing at Words in Maplewood, New Jersey this Saturday, January 15th at 2 p.m.
