Books Reading Today
posted by August 30 at 10:00 AMon
There are a bunch of readings today.
B.L. Morgan signs the mysteries Blood And Rain and Blood For The Masses at Borders Tacoma. The press release said he would be signing for 6 hours, from 12 to 6. HARD CORE! And Cricket McRae, whose first name is Cricket, will be signing her mystery, which is related to canning and preserving, at the Seattle Mystery Book Shop.
And at Bumbershoot, there are readings galore. The editor of the book Cringe, which is like the Salon of Shame but is based on a reading series in New York City, will be hosting a reading of awful teenage poetry. There is also something called CoochieMagik, which is exactly what it sounds like.
And there are tons of conflicts of interest there, too. David Schmader will be appearing with Kevin Sessums to talk about growing up gay in the south. New Stranger Genius Sherman Alexie will be hosting a big ol’ thing with Trisha Ready’s country band. In addition to country songs about books, Alexie will read and also Sean Nelson and Christopher Frizzelle and Ellen Forney will talk about…well, you’ll have to see it to believe it. At almost the exact same time, some douchebag with the obviously fake last name of “Constant” will be interviewing brilliant young novelists Jonathan Evison and Sarah Suh-lien Bynum.
Bumbershoot is here.
Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
