Why is it so important that Jonathan Lethem visit Moe's Books? The date, Monday June 3rd, 2024, is random but acceptable. The time, 6:00 pm, is convenient for all the concerned parties and hopefully you. The new book, The Collapsing Frontier, is, of course, exciting and important. The real reason? Friendship. Jonathan's friendship with Moe Moskowitz and the rest of his hangers-on has continued all these years.

Like a prodigal son returning, we will welcome him home. 

Although Jonathan regularly attended to Moe himself and his bookstore, some important things happened while he worked here. The most important thing was the publication of his first book Gun, with Occasional Music. If I remember right, it was right before his 30th birthday and it was with Harcourt Brace. We were all so proud.
