A runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize for commentary this year, Chris Rose, is stopping in DC on his way to pick up his accolade in New York this weekend. You can catch him at Buffalo Billiards on the south side of Dupont Circle, from 3 PM to 8 PM, where he will be signing copies of “1 Dead in Attic,” a collection of essays from the New Orleans Times-Picayune about Katrina and the post-hurricane chaos. Rose grew up in Chevy Chase and started his career at the Washington Post. A portion of the proceeds from each book is donated to the Tipitina’s Foundation, the New Orleans Musicians Clinic and ArtDocs. Have a beer, play pool, read some moving prose.
Many thanks to Alicia Ault for the tip-off and copy here.
