Reading Today

posted by on October 4 at 10:00 AM


An open mic, a mystery by a local legal historian, and three other readings today.

Up at Third Place Books, Naomi Wolf, who was discussed on Slog yesterday, reads from Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries. Wolf, you’ll recall, once convinced Al Gore to wear earth tones. This helped Al Gore win the presidency in 2000, and that’s why things are so great right now.

At Elliott Bay Book Company, Brian Culhane reads from The King’s Question, which the press release calls a collection of “thoughtful and shapely poems.” You can read two poems of his here. The Anthony Hecht Prize mentioned at the top of that page is not The Stranger’s Anthony Hecht.

And at Grey Gallery, Rivet Magazine is having a farewell party and art auction. Rivet Magazine wasn’t perfect, of course, but in its last couple of years, it really came together as an interesting and chatty read. This is the book event of the night.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.

Check out that Space issue of Rivet. I have a poem in there!
