I hope everyone can attend. I've picked this up at the BU Bookstore and it is an interesting read:)
Also, fear not! I will be scheduling future meetups in the next week and a half.
Harvard Book Store Presents...
SARAH BOXER presents Ultimate Blogs: Masterworks from the Wild Web
$5 tickets on sale now.
Harvard Book Store is pleased to host Cantabrigian author and former New York Times critic and reporter SARAH BOXER. She will be joined by Megan Sullivan of Bookdwarf.com and the Boston Phoenix's Sharon Steel in a conversation about blogs, those who write them, and why we read them.
Sifting through the blogosphere, (there are more than 80 million blogs on the Internet?and counting), Boxer manages to dig up some masterpieces along the way. Among the bloggers in the anthology are:
two fashion critics mocking the inexplicable ?fugliness? of celebrities
a Marine Corps lieutenant stationed in Fallujah in 2006
a 19-year old student in Singapore cheerfully pining for her ex
Odysseus?s sidekick telling his side of the Iliad and Odyssey
an editor of American dictionaries who picks apart the freshest words of the day
Revealing and deceptive, grand and niggling, worldly and parochial, these blogs make up a snapshot of life on the wild, wild Web.
DATE: Thursday, March 6th
TIME: 6:00 PM
LOCATION: Brattle Theatre
40 Brattle Street
TICKETS: Tickets for this event are $5 and may be purchased at Harvard Book Store or over the phone with a credit card [masked]). Please note that your $5 ticket may be redeemed for $5 off a single item at the event or at Harvard Book Store for one month following the event.
