It’s not that we have anything against Valentine’s Day, per se; we just find the hullabaloo—the flowers, the chocolates, etc.—to be a little over-the-top. That’s why we’ll spend the weekend at events that skewer the holiday or avoid it altogether, beginning with this edition of Just Working on My Novel. Author Andrew Shaffer (Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love) leads the proceedings, during which aspiring writers can read snippets of their own unpublished work, preferably on the subject of love gone wrong. Spectators can sit back, drink some gratis wine, and commiserate over the shared experience of heartbreak.
