Author Salman Rushdie has a new release coming out February 9, but — unsurprisingly – he won't be making appearances to promote it.
Rushdie, who was stabbed and punched at an event last August, has lost sight in one eye and the use of one hand.
While his "recovery is progressing," according to his agent, he won't be making public appearances in support of Victory City, which was completed before his attack.
The Guardian reports, though, that the occasion will still be marked in style, with a free online event with authors Margaret Atwood and Neil Gaiman taking place February 9.
