There will be a Suggest for this any minute now, but let me reemphasize: William Gibson's reading at the University Village Barnes & Noble is the most exciting reading this week. Even if you are not up on his newest trilogy—and Charles will tell you why you should be in this week's book section—you should still go and see him read. The man is a genius.

And David Callahan reads at Town Hall tonight. Fortunes of Change: The Rise of the Liberal Rich and the Remaking of America is about why so many rich people are contributing to good causes instead of being douchebags.

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