Reading Tonight

posted by on October 9 at 10:09 AM


RIght now, Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief, is reading at Third Place Books. She’s got a new kid’s book out called Lazy Little Loafers.

Jamaica Kincaid is reading up in the U District. This lecture appears to be directed toward the how-to-write crowd, but anyone can attend, and there will probably be enough autobiographical material to make the lecture worth Kincaid fan’s time. Also in the U District, David Domke reads from The God Strategy, which is about how people in power are sticking it to us by talking way too much about imaginary spacemen who shoot lightning bolts at us.

At Madison Market this afternoon, Sarah Kramer will discuss new new book, Vegan A Go-Go! I would hope there would be food samples at this thing, but it’s smart to host the thing where people buy food.

Most importantly, at the Hugo House, they are welcoming their new Writers-in-Residence with a reading. Ed Skoog, Angela Jane Fountas, Storme Webber, and Stranger writer Cienna Madrid, read from new work. I am unfamiliar with Fountas and Webber’s work, but Skoog is phenomenal and I’ve read and enjoyed quite a lot of the fiction Cienna’s working on right now. You should go to this one if you don’t go to Slog Happy.

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