Books Reading Tonight
posted by October 10 at 10:12 AMon
We have an open mic and two other readings tonight.
Up at Third Place Books, Laurence Gonzales reads from Everyday Survival, which is about how people don’t make stupid mistakes, until they do. It’s basically about the life or death decisions we make every day, and why we sometimes make mistakes.
Then at Elliott Bay Book Company, Gioia Timpanelli reads from What Makes a Child Lucky. Here is what SFGate says about the book: “Like a pot of lentils, Gioia Timpanelli’s stories are elemental, simple but filling, and her new novel, “What Makes a Child Lucky,” is no exception, teaching the basics of survival in a time of great hardship.” Despite this review, I recommend this reading. It’s a novella about a young boy who watches great violence happen. He then slowly build himself back into a real human.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
