The amazing Junot Diaz said that at the Edinburgh Book Festival two weeks ago. He was talking about editing one's own work, but it got me thinking about my blind spot: my naïveté.

12 cities, 7 countries, and hopefully you. LDM March is a whirlwind, in which we'll celebrate our 200th-ever event (in Chicago), and our six-year anniversary in three cities (NYC, in the space LDM began; D.C. and Boston). And then we venture, mid-month all the way to Scandinavia - including Helsinki…
