Reading Tonight

posted by on October 8 at 10:14 AM


Uch. One day, a task force of brilliant sciencey people will get together and figure out some way to watch a presidential debate that doesn’t involve drinking 12 Guinness during and immediately afterward. That will be a great day for mankind. Unfortunately, I will be dead of a ruptured liver long before that day ever happens. There are readings tonight. Let’s look at them, shall we?

You have already missed children’s illustrator Graeme Base. He started reading up at Third Place Books at the ungodly hour of 9:30 in the morning.

Eric Liu and Nick Hanauer were supposed to read at the Green Lake branch of the Seattle Public Library, but the Green Lake branch is still closed. Instead, you could go to the Douglas-Truth Branch of the SPL to see Jewell Parker Rhodes read from Yellow Moon, which is about vampires and voodoo.

Art Spiegelman is reading at Town Hall. There will be a Suggests for that popping up in a moment or two. Art Spiegelman is always entertaining.

And later today, also up at Third Place Books, Dennis Lehane will read. Lehane wrote Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, but he’s supposedly given up writing mysteries and is instead writing historical novels, as in his newest one, The Given Day. And that is what’s going on today. I am now going to take a nap under my desk.

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