Then, at 8 pm, it'll be time for the APRIL Showcase at the Richard Hugo House. This is a reading featuring Matthew Rohrer*, Heather Christle** and Rauan Klassnik***. Christle is a rare talent, and every writer I've talked to this week has been giddy about the idea of attending a reading by Rauan Klassnik. This reading is $7, and it should be worth every penny.
To read about everything else going on tonight—including a celebrated Icelandic author reading at Elliott Bay Book Company—check out the readings calendar.
