Three readings today. Cricket McRae reads at Seattle Mystery Book Shop. Spin a Wicked is a book set in Seattle about crafting and murder at the co-op. Also, this is an opportunity to meet a woman named Cricket.
And then there are two events at Elliott Bay Book Company. William O'Daly reads his new translation of one of Neruda's last books, World's End / Fin de mundo. If you're still in the giddy first year of a relationship, Neruda is totally for you. Read his poems aloud in Spanish to someone and you will totally get laid. And later in the day, Cheryl Harris Sharman, Russell Leigh Sharman and Corey Hayes discuss their book Nightshift NYC, in which they spent a year following people who work on the night shift. Both these readings are totally awesome. Come for the Neruda, stay for the stories about nocturnal missions.
And don't forget the Friends of the Library book sale, which is going on this weekend. There are allegedly 200,000 books for sale, and many of them are a buck a pop. You can find more information about the sale here.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
