Reading Tonight

posted by on April 21 at 10:13 AM


Two open mics and three readings and a few divorces going on tonight.

First, and for some reason not on our readings calendar, but listed here, is Nathaniel Rich, reading at Elliott Bay Book Company. Rich is the editor of The Paris Review, and he’s in town with The Mayor’s Tongue, a debut novel about two men, one old and one young.

At the University Bookstore, Theo Pauline Nestor reads from How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed, which is a book about how she overcame a horrible divorce from a man with a secret gambling addiction. I would personally have more respect for How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed if it were a country song.

And at the Intiman, Edward Hirsch, the poet who wrote How to Read a Poem, is reading. According to Wikipedia, Hirsch recently divorced his wife of twenty-five years. Perhaps he’ll sing a country song about it.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is awaiting your perusal.
