So what do you think long-time staff writer at The New Yorker, national and international award-winner, and overall big deal in the writing/journalism world Adam Gopnik has been doing in Twincy for the last week? We mentioned that he did a sneaky pop-in to the UofM last Wednesday, and this Tuesday night he’s doing an exciting and more formal book signing and discussion at the beautifully remodeled Parkway Theater that includes his coming up in New York in the 80s and the radically different New York (and his radically different life as a dad) now. Our guess? Hanging out at Magers & Quinn, one of the hosts of his highly anticipated talk. Tuesday, October 16th, 7 PM. $20.Tracy Oxford
