c692/1243451574-singlewomencover.preview.jpgThree readings today.

At Elliott Bay Book Company, Jane Ganahl, Diane Mapes and Anne Buelteman talk about women traveling in midlife to celebrate the paperback release of Single Woman of a Certain Age: Romantic Escapades, Shifting Shapes, and Serene Independence.

Third Place Books hosts Gene Ayres, who is a mystery author who lived in china for two and a half years. Billion to One is his non-fiction account of that time.

And Anthony Bourdain and Mario Batali are at the Paramount tonight. The celebrity chefs will engage in "foodie banter," which sounds like a disease you'd pick up in a Thai whorehouse.

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