If you’re in New York City, come down to Housing Works tonight, between 6:30 and 8 PM, for a low-key, low-budget (!) wine reception for the just announced 2007 National Book Critics Circle finalists. You’ll have a chance to meet Joan Acocella and several other finalists, as well as some members of the newly elected NBCC board. The address is 126 Crosby Street, between Houston and Prince. All are welcome, and bring a book to donate if you can.
