For some reason the fall is when a plethora of book-related festivals and events burst out everywhere in the area, and one of the early leaders is coming to a close over the next five days: the Jewish Literary Festival at the 16th street JCC. I think the most interesting item on deck is Andrea Askowitz’s talk on Sunday about her amusingly named book, My Miserable, Lonely Lesbian Pregnancy.

Okay, maybe I have a curious definition of amusing. And my opinion might be colored by the fact that Askowitz is a professor from my alma mater. And because brunch is included in the price.

But there’s a schedule of other events running between now and the close on Wednesday. None of the remaining events are free but at $9 for the non-brunch events they’re not going to break the bank either.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
