Books Reading Tonight
posted by August 19 at 10:18 AMon
Three readings tonight, including another signing for that I Brake For Meltdowns book from yesterday.
At Queen Anne Bookstore, which is a very nice bookstore on top of Queen Anne, Matt Ruff will be reading from the brand-new paperback release of Bad Monkeys. Ruff is a local author who is smart and funny and capable of changing genre with disturbing ease. I recommend this reading tonight.
But I also recommend another reading tonight: Dirk Wittenborn reads from his novel Pharmakon at Elliott Bay Book Company. There will be a Suggests post popping up around here somewhere about this reading, but it’s an interesting, semiautobiographical novel. Basically, your decision about where to go tonight should be based on your interest: it’s either Wittenborn, with a novel about a family and the beginnings of the modern pharmaceuticals industry or Ruff, with a novel about a possibly crazy woman with a ray gun who thinks she works for a super-secret spy agency. Your answer will announce to the world exactly what kind of person you are.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
