Now You See Them, Now You Don’t

Two revered writers give rare public readings.

  1. 1. Seamus Heaney

    May 18 at 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Ave.212-415-5500; $17

    The famed Irish author (and winner of the Nobel Prize in 1995) is a regular presence on the European circuit but reads here only infrequently.

  2. 2. Gay Talese

    May 18 at Barnes & Noble, 33 E. 17th St., nr. Broadway; 212-253-0810; free

    Talese may live on the Upper East Side (and is certainly no stranger to the book-party whirl), but he rarely mingles with his hoi polloi readers.
