So in a bit of personal news: I got a new job!

I’ll be starting as a senior developmental editor at Bedford/St. Martin’s (an imprint of Macmillan) later this week.

I have some wonderful friends there who I’ll greatly miss (though I’m putting us on a monthly happy hour schedule). But I’m excited for the change, both in the work I’ll be doing — developing print and e-content for neat books such as this — and in the awesome team I’ll get to work with.

In my few days off between jobs, I’m planning to hit up the Met for the Warhol exhibit, catch a matinee of Lincoln, and attend a reading or two. My top options for literary events are after the jump!
