“Practically everybody in New York has half a mind to write a book, and does,” Groucho Marx once famously said. Seeing how nothing’s changed, we anticipate quite a crowd for the 10th annual Celebration of Literary Magazines, two days of readings, shopping, and schmoozing with editors from literary magazines across the country. Today at the New York Public Library is “The Magathon,” with editors representing about 60 magazines—AGNI, One Story, and Fence, to name a few—reading selections from their most recent issues. Sunday is the Literary Magazine Fair at Housing Works Bookstore Café, where you can chat with editors and buy magazines (there will be hundreds to choose from) for only two bucks each. Today from 4 to 6:30, New York Public Library, DeWitt Wallace Periodical Room, Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street; Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., Housing Works Bookstore Café, 126 Crosby Street

Sat., May 30, 4 p.m.; Sun., May 31, noon, 2009
