On Balancing Career and Family as a Woman of Color -

I have much respect for Michel Martin, her trajectory, her presence in the media world, and her frankness in this piece.

And of course, feelings about it’s content.

But it’s only the end that I will comment on. These are her feelings and I am in agreement and don’t want the pity or guilt of white women. But I’m very very hesitant to ask them to use their privilege - in that scenario their power can easily become a thing doled out to those worthy - and who is that? Those of us women of color who went to college? Who work alongside them? How can we work to improve things for all of us when what makes so much of the “us” different should not be ignored?

it’s about that time…finished books for Fall ‘14 arriving (and going right back out the door to media) top: Noontide Toll, new fiction from Romesh Gunesekera, who was short listed for the Booker Prize for Reef (also available from us). Available in Oct. bottom: The Smartphone, paperback original out in Sept, an engrossing read “that will appeal mostly to the device’s users-all 1.75 billion of them.”- Kirkus #bookstagram #fallreads #currentlyreading

My book comes out next Tuesday, July 22, and you can pre-order it here, but regardless of whether you pre-order it (although you still should, please, occasionally the publisher reminds me that part of the reason they are publishing the book is to actually sell copies of the book), you are hereby invited to the book party! It is at The POWERHOUSE Arena, a bookstore in Dumbo (37 Main St., Brooklyn, NY 11201) that is the only bookstore I’ve ever been inside that could legitimately lay claim to a name as sick as “The POWERHOUSE Arena.” Although pretty much every bookstore is sick in its own way, this one really is an arena.
The party is on Thursday, July 31from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and there will be an open bar with hard liquor as well as other kinds of alcohol. There will be DJ sets from Jon Caramanica (face all the way on the left), Sasha Frere-Jones (face next to his), and Tao Lin (face all the way on the right), and I will be “in conversation” with Jesse Cohen, one half of the band Tanlines and also the host of the podcast “No Effects.”
What I can promise is that if you come, you will have an amazing time, meet and make connections with people you will become close friends with, forge memories that will last for the rest of your life, and get trashed for free. This is all I can promise. I hope you will consider coming.

Ah I will be in boston for work on this day, and so I will miss Tao Lin in conversation with half of Tanlines (!) and I am sad about this.
