Francisco Goldman reading canceled

While it’s a blustery 40 degrees here in New Orleans, apparently the northeastern part of the country is a snowy shitshow. Sadly, among the casualties of this frigid mayhem—which included a Delta plane that slid off the runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport today—is one of the week’s most anticipated literary events, the reading by Francisco Goldman that had been scheduled to take place at 5 p.m. on Friday at Tulane. Goldman was trying to get here from up yonder, and his flight got canceled.

Stay warm out there, readers.
