Reading Tonight

posted by on May 22 at 10:03 AM


Two open mics, a book about fishing, a mystery by a bestselling local author, and a few other events of note tonight.

Up at Third Place Books, Bob Spitz reads from The Saucier’s Apprentice, which is about a writer working his way through the great culinary schools of Europe. Plus, there’s a chicken on a leash on the cover. Bonus!

Nick Heil is at the Tacoma Public Library, with a book called Dark Summit, about 2006 on Mount Everest, which was the deadliest year ever for the mountain since western white folks first decided they were going to try climbing it.

And at Town Hall, Jerry White, who the press notes announce was “maimed by a landmine,” and then started an organization intended to disarm landmines, will read from his new self-help book I Will Not Be Broken: Five Steps to Overcoming a Life Crisis. If you’re going to attend a self-help book reading, I do suggest attending one hosted by a man who has overcome being maimed by a landmine. There’s probably a better sense of perspective than, say, at a reading for The Secret.

Upcoming readings will be found on our readings calendar.

Every time another climber dies on Everest, God smiles and claps his hands.

Every time a bad writer chokes his chicken (or her bunny), God kills a climber on Mt. Everest.
