There's a ton of readings tonight, including a reading on Whidbey Island by a playwright, novelist, and television writer named Theresa Rebeck; Kelli Stanley reading from the first in a series of mysteries set in San Francisco's Chinatown in the early 40s at Seattle Mystery Bookshop; a discussion about Diabetes research at Seattle Public LIbrary's Central Branch; and much more.
We have a rare reading at Peter Miller Architecture, that beautiful architecture bookstore in Belltown. Andrea Cochran will be on hand to discuss Andrea Cochran: Landscapes, a book by Andrea Cochran (of Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture) about her forays into landscape architecture.
Both Third Place Books are having events tonight. Kristin Hannah is at the main store in Lake Forest Park. Winter Garden is a novel about "the mother-daughter bond," and Leningrad. And the Ravenna branch of Third Place Books is hosting Sondra Kornblatt. What's the next best thing to getting sleep? Apparently, it's Restful Insomnia : How to Get the Benefits of Sleep Even When You Can't. I expect to see a lot of bleary eyes at this reading.
There is a reading at one of the most delicious places in Seattle—the I Love NY Deli on Roosevelt—tonight. David Sax reads from his book Save the Deli. It's about how the deli is going extinct.
Elliott Bay Book Company is hosting Rick Smith and Bruce Laurie. Slow Death by Rubber Duck is about how YOUR HOUSE IS FULL OF EVIL PLASTICS THAT WILL KILL YOU! Hopefully, this is the book that will save your life so you can live forever. Either this reading or the Deli reading would make a fine 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.
