Just a friendly reminder that you can join me and author Carmela Ciuraru tonight at Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn for a discussion of Carmela’s book Nom de Plume and literary pseudonyms throughout history. Perhaps you will learn which author almost used the pseudonym Michael Angelo Titmarsh. Or which author had so many pseudonyms that they began critiquing the work of the others. You could probably learn the answers to that and more from Google, but will Google give you free wine, offer prizes and surround you with a lovely neighborhood bookstore? No, it will not. (I’m sure Google is working feverishly on wine-with-searching, but for now: No, it will not.) Hope to see you there.
