Your week at McNally Jackson??!?:
Monday (that’s tonight), 7pm: The Bridge is our ongoing series about literature in translation—near and dear to our hearts, this series is. This time it’s about translating from the Japanese: Michael Emmerich, who puts Banana Yoshimoto (among others) into American, and Ted Goossen, one of the forces behind Monkey Business, are here.
Tuesday, 7pm: Hari “The Funzru” Kunzru is here to talk about Gods Without Men. BYOUFO.
Wednesday, 7pm: We got the old Groff-Bergman double whammy. Birds of Lesser Arcadia. Arcadias of a Lesser Bird. Barcadia of a Lesser Paradise (that’s a bar in West Bushwick).
Behind The Scenes at the National Air and Space Museum: A Blending of Photography and X-Ray:An x-ray of Alan Shepard’s Apollo 14 spacesuit allows curators and conservators to “see” inside space clothing—a task that had previously been done by peering through the neck or the wrist with a flashlight.
This is the video I wish I could spread around like the Kony video got spread around. Except Neil deGrasse Tyson isn’t going to get caught naked in California.
Amen, Alex. I’m seeing him in a few weeks and get teary-eyed just thinking about being in the same airspace as my #1 hero. Maybe we can stage a public meltdown for Gawker to care about then swap in this video when no one’s looking?
