About a century ago (almost 2 years, actually) I read "The Building of Quality" in Monica Jacobe's very fun A Space Inside reading series at the venerable (they even serve afternoon tea!) Riverby Books. As I'll be out west, I'm going to miss the reading scheduled for November 28th, but if you're anywhere in the Washington DC area, don't miss it! Mary Kay Zuravleff will be reading something new... not from her elegantly witty DC museum-insider novel of manners, The Bowl is Already Broken. (I know this novel well; I had the priviledge of reading multiple drafts.) Nor will she be reading from her first novel, The Frequency of Souls, which one critic deemed “the best short comic novel ever written about refrigerator designers with psychic powers." Whatever it is she's going to read, this is sure to be a special evening. Here's the official info:

The reading is free, the books are used, and the wine is new. Spread the word.
Riverby Books is at 417 E. Capitol St., SE, near the Folger Theater.
