Registration has now closed for this event, but don't worry - we've got plenty of room for you and your friends to attend. We'll have chairs set up by 5:30 pm.
James Mustich, author of 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die, will be in conversation with Lake Effect's Mitch Teich on Friday, October 5, 7 pm. Register for this free event here.
Encompassing fiction, poetry, science and science fiction, memoir, travel writing, biography, children's books, history, and more, 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die moves across cultures and through time to present an eclectic collection of titles, each described with the special enthusiasm readers summon when recommending a book to a friend.
Booklist starred review: "Every so often, a reference book appears that changes the landscape of its area of focus. In the case of reading and readers' advisory, this is one such book. The lively, witty, insightful prose covers 1,000 titles across all fields of literature, from fiction to philosophy, nature to technology."
Publishers Weekly review: This compulsively readable reference work from Mustich, cofounder of the Common Reader book catalogs, is sure to send bibliophiles hopscotching through its pages. The 1,000 entries (actually more when taking into account the book's recommended reading lists and many sidebars), ordered alphabetically by author, include classic and contemporary works, literary and genre titles, fiction (mostly) and nonfiction, and children's and adult reading--each fleshed out with several short but insightful paragraphs of critical commentary."
Because this book is so special, and because we know it will lead to many more book purchases for many of you, we want to get 1000 Books to Read Before You Die into as many hands as possible, so the book is 20% off its list price.
James Mustich has worked in publishing and was an independent bookseller in Briarcliff Manor, New York. He cofounded the book catalog The Common Reader in 1986. Mitch Teich is the Executive Producer of Milwaukee Public Radio's Lake Effect, which airs on 89.7, WUWM.
Special bonus - 10 folks who register and attend this event will get $5 Boswell gift cards.
