Reading Today

posted by on August 23 at 10:00 AM


We have an open mic and a bunch of events going on today.

At Elliott Bay Book Company, Marti Kheel reads from Nature Ethics: An Ecofeminist Perspective. That’s ethics, feminism, and environmentalism in one book. Is there such a thing as book karma? You’ll totally clean up here.

On the other end of the book karma scale: Chris Grabenstein reads at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop from Hell Hole, a mystery about a cop investigating a murder in Jersey that leads to Iraq. This is the best author last name of the day, and the best book title of the day.

Later at Seattle Mystery Bookshop will be Sarah Katherine Lewis, reading from Sex and Bacon: Why I Love Things That Are Very, Very Bad For Me. It’s not a mystery, but the author is local. This may be the last reading she’ll do for this book, if you’re so inclined.

And then back to Elliott Bay Book Company for a later reading of a book that also has ‘sex’ in the title but is very, very different: Carly Milne reads from Sexography, which is about becoming a sexual being again after being sexually abused.

Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.
