If you know me at all then you know my not-so-secret secret: I am obsessed with Game of Thrones. In fact, I was so depressed after the culmination of Season 3 that I read the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series. And for that reason I tell you with great reluctance that the series’ author George R.R. Martin is bringing his mass murderer self to Brown on October 23. He will appear, along with distinguished publisher Tom Doherty, to receive the Library’s inaugural Harris Collection Literary Award. The presentation and subsequent interview will occur in Salomon 101 at 7 p.m.
Why would I be reluctant to tell you this, you might be wondering? Am I not excited? That’s just it. I am so excited that as I write this I hope no one reads it so that no one thinks to get tickets. Then maybe I’ll get quality time with G.R.R.M. so I can ask him all my burning questions. (What does the R.R. stand for? Why do you kill all of my favorite characters? Is there any chance you can give my resume to the producers of Game of Thrones?) Maybe if I tell you guys not to go, then you’ll listen. So here goes nothing…
You should definitely not go to this link on Monday, October 6 at 12 p.m to reserve your spot. It will certainly not be amazing nor will the Q&A be enlightening. Seriously, you really don’t want to go. Don’t get tickets. In fact, forget this post even happened. Please.
