The coolest book event of 2009

Great news, Atlanta! I've just received confirmation from Wordsmiths Books, my favorite local bookseller, that David Hajdu will be making a stop in Decatur on his upcoming tour to promote the paperback of his latest book, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America. Hajdu is the music critic for The New Republic and currently a professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. Back in '06 and '07, when he still lived upstate, he was a professor in the Goldring Arts Journalism program at Syracuse University, where we got to know each other. Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 12. More details to come...
