Zadie Smith, author of White Teeth and The Autograph Man, is on a roll this September, and it's bringing her back to SoCal. Not only is she going to be in Los Angeles for An Evening with Zadie Smith at 826 LA on October 2nd (details coming to you as soon as we get them), not only is her third book, On Beauty, coming out September 13th, she's on the Booker Prize shortlist. She's unlikely to win - Julian Barnes is leading the field with the bookies - but the recognition is well deserved.
