Books Reading Tonight
posted by April 8 at 10:16 AMon
If you’re into very specific things, like body image, nibbling, or quibbling with grammar, there might be something going on that would interest you in readings tonight. Otherwise, it could be a night to stay home.
Up at Third Place, Patrick Carman is reading from Saving Mr. Nibbles, which is a children’s book.
Bainbridge Island is hosting its second annual poetry slam.
Also, June Casagrand is at the University Bookstore with Mortal Syntax, which is a book whose subtitle reads: 101 Language Choices That Will Get You Clobbered by the Grammar Snobs—Even If You’re Right. This is an interesting choice. It seems to be a grammar snob book that’s trying to position itself as an anti-grammar snob book. Self-loathing grammar snobs will be turning out in droves this evening in the University District.
Then, there’s a touchy-feely night going on at the Elliott Bay Book Company. Three poets read poems along the theme of Life Lessons at 6 pm, and then at 8 pm, Rosanne Olson reads from her book This is Who I Am: Our Beauty in All Shapes and Sizes, which is a book of mostly nude photography of women who are, um, all shapes and sizes.
Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.
Also, if you haven’t already, you should check out the nifty, brand-new books page, which has a ton more reviews and a mini-blog revue of the last week’s books-themed Slog posts, over here.
