Reading Tonight

posted by on October 7 at 10:18 AM


There are a bunch of kids books readings today for some reason and then a bunch of readings that I will talk about now.

At Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Jewell Parker Rhodes reads from Yellow Moon, a mystery about a voodoo practitioner. E Lynn Harris says it has “an exciting contemporary heroine battling New Orleans’s racist past and preparing for post-Katrina times.”

At the Montlake Branch of Seattle Public Library, Kim Barnes reads from A Country Called Home, which is a novel about a man and a pregnant woman fleeing to the wilderness. At Town Hall, Keith Devlin reads from The Unfinished Game, which is about Pascal and Fermat and their elitist correspondence. I hate it when these elitists start doing math. I prefer my math done by people as dumb or dumber than me.

And then there are two very interesting-looking readings. At the University Book Store, Michael Meyer reads from The Last Days of Old Beijing, which is about gentrification in China. If you’re at all interested in urban planning or China or urban planning in China, this is for you. And then, at Elliott Bay Book Company, Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards are hosting an evening of choice-y readings. Baumgardner reads from Abortion and Life. Richards reads from Opting In: Having a Child Without Losing Yourself. Someone, somewhere, is really pissed that two books involving the words “Abortion” and “Having a Child” are sharing reading space in the same evening.

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