Books Reading Tonight
posted by September 5 at 10:00 AMon
Stay home tonight. Seriously, stay home.
Up at Third Place Books, Cricket McRae reads from her new book, Heaven Preserve Us, which is a mystery about canning and pickling. Apparently, someone dies of botulism and it may have been intentional. I’m sure there’s a Murder She Wrote marathon on tonight somewhere, and that’s probably more interesting than this book.
And then at Elliott Bay Book Company, Cal Kinnear, who works at something called Washington Lawyers for the Arts, reads from his new book of poetry. Here is what Elliott Bay’s website says about the book:
A Walk in Bardo, named for the Tibetan Buddhist liminal space between lives, refers to journeys both inward and outward, obsessions, dreams and with ‘the communal fantasies of the commons’ psyche.
What the fuck?
