Reading Tonight

posted by on June 2 at 10:00 AM


Tonight we have an open mic, a book about Christianity, and a mystery where the President might be a murderer.

At the University Book Store, Douglas Smith reads from The Pearl, which is a book about an opera singer falling in love with an aristocrat. In Russia. In the 18th Century. And it’s non-fiction.

And at Elliott Bay Book Company, a man with the unfortunate last name of Creamer is reading from Listen to Your Mother, Stand Up Straight! This is one of the worst titles I’ve heard in a long time. But it’s about being a progressive and organizing people toward a common goal. And before you roll your eyes, Mr. Creamer helped organize the fight against privatizing social security. Which is one of the few liberal victories from that era of the Bush White House. So this is a man who at least knows what he’s talking about.

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

Fuck this book. If I didn't have a movie to go to I'd show up with a 500 page essay titled "300 things I hate about you and the cover of your book--and your book, based on Amazon reviews that hate it, too".

No, but seriously. Just look at it.
