Tonight, you have an opportunity to bask in Bering's Savage-approved brilliance live and in person. He'll be reading from Penis at Town Hall starting at 7:30 PM. After Dan raved about Bering, I checked out the book, and it's a lot of fun—a collection of brisk, well-written essays about biology, with a special emphasis on sex of all varieties, cannibalism, and free will. And it's very funny, too. This is the kind of book you should leave around for occasional dipping and frequent conversation-starting. Those conversations will be even easier to start if you snag a signed copy from Bering's appearance tonight.
