200px-The_Power_Broker_book_coverOur pal Brendon is working his way through Robert Caro’s The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York, and he’s keeping everyone posted via a mini-blog. When Caro delivers the Mercantile’s 2013 Niehoff Lecture on Saturday, November 2nd, Brendon will be ready to make quality small talk with the great man during the cocktail reception, unlike certain Librarians, who will be forced to mumble something about once hearing a recording of Lyndon Johnson ordering pants, since said Librarian will probably not have gotten too far into Caro’s acclaimed multi-volume LBJ bio.

It pays to do your homework.
