2. If you're not into science fiction, I've got a reading for you, too. Andrew Solomon's book about depression, The Noonday Demon, has become a classic. His new book, Far From the Tree, is the fruit of a decades' worth of "interviews with more than 250 families dealing with autism, deafness, schizophrenia, kids who identify as transgender, or kids who are conceived in rape, or commit serious crimes." In short, he's written a mammoth book that deals directly with the nature vs. nurture argument. I only got this book in the mail last week, which means it was too late for me to review it in time for the reading, but it's really quite impressive and I can't wait to dig in.
3. There's also a reading with a Jimi Hendrix expert tonight, too. For everything you need to know about everything literary in Seattle, visit our readings calendar.
