Here is Seth Kushner’s fundraiser. If you haven’t already, please check it out. He’s a wonderful guy fighting an awful disease.

This time, we’re trying something a little different. We all got together to record and review (in the historic Manhattan Saddlery, no less), and this time had more of a conversation about the books than usual. There was a lot to talk about, too: just one gorgeous book after the other.
