Up next at the Center for Literary Arts is Salman Rushdie.
I hear he's a fascinating speaker, a funny guy and a "brilliant conversationalist." Of course there are people around the world who hate him, and people who love him. That mix is undoubtedly good for his literary career.
Salon did a good piece on him here.
He'll be at SJSU's Morris Dailey Auditorium on Thursday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets ($25 general, $10 students) available at the SJSU Box Offie and Ticketmaster.
Next week I interview Alice Sebold. You still have time to float questions to me that you think I should ask her.
