Reading Tonight

posted by on September 26 at 10:09 AM


We have a children’s book and a mystery named Vi Agra Falls and several other events tonight.

At the Library, Robert Fisk reads from Age of the Warrior. Fisk has one of those rare Hendrik Hertzberg talents—he has commented on just about every war on Earth in the last ten years with concise and incisive language. He needs maybe a thousand words less than everybody else to talk about terribly complex subjects, and he should be a pip in person.

And at Jack Straw Productions, local literary magazine The Raven Chronicles is celebrating the release of their fourteenth volume’s first issue. They will be joined by a number of authors, including Stranger Genius John Olson and something called “Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.” This would be well worth checking out, too.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
