Books Reading Tonight
posted by May 27 at 10:00 AMon
A whole bunch of readings tonight, including a mystery and a book about going to Mars.
Also: Jennie Shortridge is at the University Book Store with The Coffee Shop at the Center of the Universe, about a woman who has a crisis and becomes a barista, and so learns about the world. I don’t believe that the coffee shop is a misogynistic Chica Latte affair where the workers wear lingerie or swim suits. That would be a different book. With a foreword by Camille Paglia.
And at Elliott Bay Book Company, Adam Leith Gollner reads from The Fruit Hunters, which “is a rollicking account of the world of fruit and fruit fanatics.” Then, after Gollner, Mary Tillman, mother of Pat Tillman, will read from her new book Boots on the Ground by Dusk. I’m willing to bet that 9/11 Truth people will be in attendance, trying to gather ‘clues,’ since Tillman has unfortunately become the Saint of 9/11 Truth.
Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.
