Books Reading Tonight
posted by May 23 at 10:19 AMon
We’re gearing up for a quiet Memorial Day weekend here in booksville.
Up at Third Place Books, we have Doug Thompson, reading from Whales: Touching the Mystery. Whale books are apparently all the rage now. I cannot endorse this book reading, though, because touching whales is, generally, a very bad idea. Do not try this at home. If there is a whale in your home, please contact the proper authorities, before touching it in an appropriate or inappropriate manner.
Author David Gilmour and his son Jessie are at Elliott Bay Book Company. When Jessie tried to drop out of high school, David told him that he could, but only if he would watch a movie a day with his father. Presumably the book deal that David got for writing The Film Club, about their experiences watching movies together, was not part of the initial deal.
The full readings calendar is over yonder.
