Reading Tonight

posted by on March 10 at 10:02 AM


After yesterday’s big bit of nothing, we’ve got a similarly dismal day in the readings world.

Steven Thomas (a.k.a. Steven M. Thomas) is reading from Criminal Paradise, about “the redemption of an honorable thief” at both Seattle Mystery Bookshop and at Third Place Books. I said it in the calendar and I’ll say it again here: If he’s so honorable, why does he need redemption? I don’t think I’ll ever find out.

E. J. Dionne, Jr. is at Town Hall with a book called Souled Out: Reclaiming Faith and Politics after the Religious Right. Personally, I’m fine with leaving faith where it is and moving on, rather than bothering with all that messy reclamation.

Then there are two open mics, and that’s it. I feel as though I’ve personally let everybody down with this weak-ass day of readings.

Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, here.

UPDATE: Author Craig Jeffrey is at the University Bookstore with his book Degrees Without Freedom, which is about marginalized poor people in India. It’s clearly the best reading of the day. My apologies to the good folks at UBooks.

Nice cover. Do you want me to judge your book by its cover? Because I will, I did, it's done: this book sucks.
