The Godine crew are headed to New York this week for Book Expo America! It's been mayhem in the office getting prepared but everything is packed and loaded now, the drive-down playlist has been selected, and we are ready to roll. Track one: Elvis Costello, “Every Day I Write the Book;” track two: The Beatles, “Paperback Writer;” track three, Modest Mouse, “Bukowski;” track four: Bright Eyes, “Perfect Sonnet.” We're open to adding more book & writer–related songs if you've got suggestions!
If you're at the show, stop by our digs — Booth 3734 — to sign the 40th Anniversary guest book, grab yourself some bookmarks, posters, and other special BEA giveaways, and, of course, check out our new titles. Will we live-Tweet the show? You'll just have to wait and see. If we meet Barbara Streisand, you will definitely hear about it.
