You've by now read about the whole literature Genius Award shortlist, and you're wondering to yourself, "How can I enjoy all these geniuses in one place?" Have I got an event for you: Tonight, the Frye is home to all the finalists at the same time. You'll see Maged Zaher, Neal Stephenson, and the organizers of the APRIL Festival onstage with A&P literature editor Paul Constant for a reading and Q&A about their particular areas of genius and what Seattle-area geniuses they admire. At no other event this year will you see such great literary genius, and in such disparate categories of expertise, on one single stage. (Good thing Constant will be there to dumb things down, so nobody's brain explodes from too much thinking.)
