Reading Tonight

posted by on October 3 at 10:06 AM


A how-to-write-books author and the author of an 800-page book about Steve Goodman will be reading tonight, along with three other authors.

At Open Books, we have Aaron Shurin, reading from his newest book of poetry, King of Shadows. I have never read Shurin, but he has a very complimentary Wikipedia page.

At Town Hall, Naomi Wolf, who has already been discussed on Slog today, will be reading from her newest book, about patriotism and also the lack of patriotism. She’ll also be at Third Place Books tomorrow if you miss her tonight.

And in the U District, Neil Gaiman reads from his newest, The Graveyard Book. It’s a sort-of goth take on The Jungle Book, for young adults. I read it and, frankly, I was underwhelmed. But he’s written lots of entertaining stuff, even with his weird attachment to Tori Amos.

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