As I mentioned in an earlier post, author, critic and former professor of mine David Hajdu is coming to Decatur's own Wordsmiths Books tomorrow night. He'll be reading from his latest book, The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America, just released in paperback. He goes on at 7:30 p.m, and the event is free (aside from the cost of his book, which you will doubtless be inspired to purchase).
You can find more information about his book here, and read an interview with Hajdu conducted by event co-sponsor Cable & Tweed here. I can't recommend this event strongly enough. Come out and support Wordsmiths and the fine cultural criticism of David Hajdu.
