This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

Week of November 3, 2004

Tuesday, November 9Other than Tom Wolfe and the late Oscar Wilde, writers are sartorially deficient. They all dress like grad students who woke up late for that 1 p.m. Freshman Comp section they should never have agreed to teach. But Wil Haygood seems to want to shake that trend. He's not only a staff writer for the Style section of the Washington Post, he also authored a book on the ever-snappily dressed Sammy Davis Jr. (the highly regarded In Black and White: The Life of Sammy Davis Jr.). So you can be sure that Mr. Haygood will look good while he's reading from his works at the Anheuser-Busch Hall on Washington University's campus (Forsyth and Skinker boulevards; 314-935-5576) at 8 p.m. as part of the free "The Smart Set" reading series. In this instance only, perhaps they should change the name to "The Smartly Dressed Set."
