The literature: emmastraub's THE VACATIONERS

The libation: We here at Proof Reading firmly believe that no family vacation should be endured without the strategic application of some local liquor. And when in Mallorca, do as the Mallorcans do. Palo de Mallorca was initially brewed as an herbal curative for malaria in the 1600s, but as time went on, the islanders started adding alcohol and using it more for - well, let’s just call it self-medication.

Pour a small measure over ice and sip by the pool as your family works out their issues back in the hotel room - after all, you can only drink Palo on Mallorca, but your family is your family no matter where you go.

 Riverhead Books is thrilled to announce that Publicity Director Jynne Dilling Martin will join Kate Stark and Catherine Lynch in the additional role of Associate Publisher, Riverhead Books. Ms. Martin joined Riverhead in 2011. She quickly fulfilled – and surpassed – the reputation she had already established for her passion, smarts, and originality in creating innovative, electric, no-stone-unturned campaigns for many of Riverhead’s national bestsellers, including Khaled Hosseini’s And the Mountains Echoed, Junot Díaz’s This Is How You Lose Her, Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings, Masha Gessen’s The Man Without a Face, Chang-rae Lee’s On Such a Full Sea, and Peter Matthiessen’s In Paradise. Her determination and personal zeal have helped to propel the careers of established writers to new heights, and elevated the profiles of a number of emerging writers, such as Helen Oyeyemi, Juan Gabriel Vasquez, Claire Vaye Watkins and Marlon James.
 This new title recognizes the role she has taken on beyond being an exemplary publicity director in all of these ways. Working closely with Kate Stark and Geoffrey Kloske, Ms. Martin has been equally tireless and resourceful in helping to discover emerging platforms, new media forms, and new partnerships —  and in the process, she has been instrumental in making Riverhead’s publicity and marketing apparatus the envy of the industry, and in highlighting Riverhead itself as a highly regarded and much-sought-after home for exceptional, important authors and books.
 Prior to Riverhead, Ms. Martin was the Associate Director of Publicity at the Random House Publishing Group, and has also worked at Simon & Schuster and St. Martin’s Press.

I showed Jon Stewart my sports knowledge and my also my incredible calves last night. 
I MADE A PUN BECAUSE “CALVES” SOUNDS LIKE “CAVS” as in Cleveland Cavaliers, which is a sports team. 
THAT IS HOW MUCH I KNOW.
If you want to see me say the words “White Power” on television go HERE, unless they wisely edited that part out. It’s at the end. 
Please come see us at The Thrilling Adventure Hour in NYC tomorrow night: TICKETS. 
I will be giving away two tickets to the Thrilling Adventure Show this afternoon on my MAILING LIST as well. 
That is all for now.
