Well, it’s that time again. Time to, well, eat, drink and be literary. Brooklyn Academy of Music (affectionately known as BAM) is hosting its annual event where regular schmoes like me get to have dinner and pick the brains of their favorite authors. I attended last year’s event with guest author Zadie Smith (see my post here) and besides being in awe of Ms. Smith and her brilliant brain, I enjoyed the food, the crowd and the space itself.

HBO has been giving me some much needed life now that we are counting down until the Orange Apocalypse a.k.a. President Clown’s inauguration. With the addition of Issa Rae’s show Insecure and sci-fi thriller Westworld, I am one happy camper. Insecure Issa Rae, of Awkward Black Girl fame, has burst onto the cable scene with her new show, Insecure.

Ms. Rae has … Continue reading New Shows to Love
