I turn into a massive groupie when it comes to authors -- probably more so with authors than with musicians or actors. So imagine my delight to discover that Franz and Kurt Wisner are doing a free reading/signing at the Philadelphia Free Library next month! And imagine my delight to discover that, two weeks after them, John Banville (the author of "The Sea," this year's Booker winner) is speaking! I was jumping up and down and squealing, unable to explain to anyone why I was so excited. I. can't. wait.
