YES, I CAN SPELL "SHTEYNGART": The Free Library of Philadelphia will be hosting the first annual Philadelphia Book Festival this weekend. It's all free, and the list of authors and performers includes a number of ALOTT5MA faves, such as Patti Smith, R.L. Stine, Alexander McCall Smith, Mark Bowden, Terry McMillan, Francine Prose, Julie (of "& Julia" fame) Powell and the beloved ThrowingWife, who will be moderating a panel on memoirs with Ms. Powell, Darcey Steinke and Elizabeth Gilbert. Should be a great weekend, and the weather may have finally stopped sucking.
