There are many readings tonight, including the Salon of Shame at the Theatre Off Jackson, which (if you haven't ever attended a SoS) is more enjoyable than you'd think.
Up at Third Place Books tonight, Robert Ferrigno reads from his latest book about Islam clashing with America, Heart of the Assassin. Ferrigno's political/espionage thrillers have some rabid fans. I have never gotten into the books. I think they're pretty poorly written.
At Elliott Bay Book Company, Cheryl Klein reads from her new novel. Lilac Mines is about a lesbian dealing with a breakup and a gay bashing.
At University Book Store, Joan Hockaday and David Streatfield will do a reading. While I was on vacation, Charles edited and wrote the reading calendar and this is what he wrote about this reading: "This great book Greenscapes: Olmstead's Pacific Northwest is about Frederick Law Olmsted's influence on our city's great park system." I agree with Charles. This is the reading of the night.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here. And if you're planning on staying in and you're looking for personalized book recommendations, feel free to tell me the books you like and ask me what to read next over at Questionland.
