Monday. Early evening. Featured author from The New York Times book section in at least two places (such as here and here). What else do you need for dinner? Food? Bah; grab something off of Cafe Hollander‘s gluten-free menu afterwards. With the author.
That was my thinking earlier tonight. Adam Johnson gave a reading from his new novel “The Orphan Master’s Son” at Boswell Books (proof in the photo of Johnson with some of my fellow UWM Creative Writing grad students and an alum). At dinner Adam reminded us that he is meticulous in his writing process–that he not only writes daily, but that he has taken enough notes for years to know when and where his best writing occurs.
