I'd be glad to read at your bookshop in East Hampton. you don't have to go through Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The official publication date is August 24, but the people at FS&G tell me there will be b ooks in the stores starrting aroudn August 7th. The party, wich will be at the New York Public Library, is on August 19th (from 6:00 to 8:00). You'll be receiving an invitation and I'd be very pleased if it were possible for you to come. I can't fix on a date right now, but something between August 20th and the first days of September should be possible. Are there any restricitions on the dates for you? What is the latest we can decide? I hope your summer is going well. As ever, Susan." The letter is folded twice and has a small stain at the bottom left corner. The recipient was the owner of bookstore in East Hampton and was clearly a friend of Sontag. A nice association copy.
