New York Is Book Country is one of the city’s premier book festivals, and one of Abbeville‘s favorites. We like the bravado of the show’s title; we’re glad that New York considers bookishness something to brag about, despite our most prominent magazine’s just having announced that “book country” will soon become as mythical a land as Narnia. No matter—Abbeville will be out at the festival in full force, selling our brand-new wares and spreading goodwill. Generous discounts are guaranteed, plus we think we heard someone mention free balloons! Come stop by our booth (#23), browse, pick up some swag, and say hi to your friendly local Arbiters of Style. The show takes place this Sunday, September 21, from 10 AM to 5 PM, in Central Park between Literary Walk (naturally) and the Bandshell. See you there!
P.S. In case you missed it, our fireball of breaking news was picked up by Gothamist yesterday. Citizen Erin also filed a news report on iReport.com, where one buzzkill commenter pointed out that technically, the motorcycle didn’t “spontaneously combust.” Well, maybe not, but it didn’t take its time combusting either.
