For those know-it-all locals, you might have noticed that #3 and #4 of my TWLF picks are two panels moderated by the fabulous Diana Pinckley and John Pope, respectively. The couple is the coolest literary couple in the city and although I don’t necessarily associate moderation with either of them, I know they can host the heck out of any get together. Check these panels out just because they don’t handle boring very well so will do their best to achieve the opposite effect.
