New York Times is all about the ladies.
L.A. Weekly includes plenty of excerpts and dares to tell us how fiction works.
Okay, so I'm a bit biased toward California. Maybe that's because my local branch has been having some spectacular author talks this summer. Unfortunately I missed Janet Fitch (White Oleander) on July 10th, but I'm hoping to catch sci-fi legend Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and oh, a million more) on August 31st. I have the feeling the event will be packed.
