Seveneves at the JCC

Next week should be epic at the JCC.

Yes, we have Sibel Kekilli and WHEN WE LEAVE on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thursday, well, Thursday is Thanksgiving. Turkey and football and (I hope) Melinda's epic apple pie. (Pumpkin pie has its fans, I know, but I'm an All American apple pie guy. With a slice of cheese on the side, please. 'Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze,' my mother used to say). That will be fun... but it won't be at the JCC.

On the Sunday after Thanksgiving, we have another very special event. That afternoon, at 3:30, NEAL STEPHENSON will be dropping by for a visit, to talk about his new novel SEVENEVES.



I haven't had the chance to read SEVENEVES myself, though I am looking forward to it. There's been a lot of critical buzz about this one, and some great reviews; right now, it looks as if SEVENEVES will be a strong contender come Hugo time. Neal Stephenson is no stranger to that, of course. He's won (and lost) Hugos before, and his wins include 'the Big One,' the Hugo for best novel. We will also have a good selection of his backlist available for sale... and signing... at the JCC.

So if you're in New Mexico this Sunday, come by and meet him, enjoy a cocktail, and hear how it happened that the moon broke up.
