Party Lines Slideshow: Sloane Crosley, Anthony Mackie, Ethan Hawke, and More at the 2010 Library Lions Gala


Last night at the 2010 Library Lions Gala, held in the New York Public Library, Vulture caught up with book publisher turned author Sloane Crosley. It's been a while, but Jodi Picoult's criticism of the huge reaction to Jonathan Franzen's Freedom — during which Picoult said, "Yes, the Times favors white male authors" — was still on our mind, so we asked Crosley for her opinion. "I think it’s a massive book. How long has it been since The Corrections? Ten years? That’s part of it. It's just also a social-commentary book. It’s the subject matter. It’s a great book."
