Books Reading Tonight
posted by March 19 at 10:00 AMon
We’ve got the Poetry Slam and a wide range of interesting subjects tonight, to counter yesterday’s suck.
Up at Third Place Books, the picturesquely named Clay Eals reads from his biography of Steve Goodman, who wrote many songs, including “City of New Orleans,” which for some reason I attributed to Willie Nelson all these years.
The University Bookstore is having a pre-Norwescon signing and Q&A session with an panel of science fiction authors. Norwescon is a huge science fiction convention that’s taking place in SeaTac this weekend. Here’s the convention’s website. You’ll be reading much more about Norwescon later this week.
Fred Krupp, who is smarter than you and I will ever be, combined, is at Town Hall to talk about global warming and new sources of energy and all that. It’s always good to hear someone talk about this stuff who isn’t, you know, a pop singer or other celebrity.
And at Elliott Bay Book Company, Elisa Albert is reading from her novel The Book of Dahlia, which is a comedy about one woman’s terminal illness. This should be a good one.
Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.
