Scene @ Ed Park’s Personal Days Party

Last month, when Ed Park was kind enough to take part in the launch of my reading series, his novel, Personal Days, was still a few weeks away from publication. The official launch party came last week at the New York Society Library, where Park and Random House editor Julia Cheiffetz were joined by several of Park’s fans in the media, including Time book critic Lev Grossman and Glynnis MacNicol of mediabistro.com’s FishbowlNY, as well as some of Park’s former colleagues from the Village Voice… and co-founding Believer editor Heidi Julavits.
