1. In the paper this week, we list Rob Sheffield's reading tonight as happening at University Book Store. Unfortunately, that information is incorrect. Rob Sheffield will be reading tonight at the Rendezvous, in the downstairs Grotto. I regret the error. Sheffield will be reading from his new memoir, Turn Around Bright Eyes. It's about how Sheffield came through grief and possibly found love with the help of karaoke culture. The event is 21+ (there's booze!) and it's free.
2. Peter Orner is also reading tonight at the Hugo House. He'll be reading from his new collection of short stories, Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge, and House writer-in-residence Peter Mountford will be leading a Q&A session, too. Orner is a blogger over at The Rumpus, and his book is getting rave reviews all over the internet. If you're in the mood for fiction tonight, this is the event you'll want to attend.
