Mary Norris is the famed copy editor of New York Magazine, and is affectionately known as ‘The Comma Queen’. Mary will be reading from her new book in the Huxley Auditorium at the NYS Museum on Thursday, April 9 at 8pm. She will also be giving an informal seminar in Humanities 354 at UAlbany earlier in the day.
Mary was recently on one of my favorite podcasts reading an excerpt of her new book, titled Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen. Mary was also recently on an NPR Author Interviews segment if you’d like to hear more from her, or get a bit more acquainted with her.
If you’ve got any love for the art of putting words together, you’ll love the segments above. And I bet you would also love hearing her read from her new book on Thursday.
Mary will also be doing a Reddit AMA today, Tuesday April 7 at 11am.
