Readings and Talks: WSJ Live, Times Talks, New Yorker Festival

WSJ Live

New Yorker Festival

I’ve been meaning to post about these events for a while, and unfortunately a lot of them are sold out already, including tonight’s “Planet Hip Hop” panel with ?uestlove, Bajah, Steve Stoute and Chuck D. For those of who can’t bear to miss out on an insightful interview with your favorite bookish celebrity, you can always check Craigslist for some floating extras and B&N often has free events with some of the same names.
