Books Reading Today

There are a ton of readings today.
At The Comics Dungeon in Wallingford from 2 to 4, Chris Onstad, who does the comic Achewood, will be signing. Achewood is a very funny comic strip most of the time. You should go to this one.
At Seattle Mystery Book Shop, Rosemary Poole-Carter reads from Women of Magdalene, which is a mystery about women in a lunatic asylum dying of natural causes…or is it MURDER? Probably murder, since it’s the Seattle Mystery Book Shop.
At the University Book Store, Kael Alford and Thorne Anderson discuss their book about being a photojournalist in Iraq, which is called Unembedded.
At Elliott Bay Book Company, Laurence Gonzales, who also read yesterday, reads here today from Everyday Survival: Why Smart People Do Stupid Things. This book looks kind of like Blink for Dummies. Then, later, Deborah Copaken Koga, who wrote Shutterbabe, reads from her new novel, Between Here and April. I don’t think the book is about a threesome, but a book editor can dream, right?
And up at Third Place Books, Wendy Barnard reads from Custom Knits. One of the custom knits is, as you can see on the cover up there, a wetsuit for surfing. Now, I’m not a crafty person, but I think that might not be a good idea.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
