When I walked into the B & N Studio to meet Colson Whitehead I was immediately struck by his complete coolness. I don't just mean in how he looked... which was very attractive. It was his whole demeanor. He is the guy you want to hang out with because you will seem cool just being in his company. He is intelligent, articulate and funny.
Summer is a fantastic time for reading and Sag Harbor is the perfect antidote for these tough economic times because you may not be able to afford a trip to the beach, but you can experience it through Colson Whitehead's prose.
