University Book Store hosts the Jack Straw Reading tonight. Brian James Barr, Martha Clarkson and Bill Carty will show off the public speaking talents they have learned from Jack Straw.

And Robert Scheer reads at Town Hall tonight, too. The Great American Stickup: How Reagan Republicans and Clinton Democrats Enriched Wall Street While Mugging Main Street is a book about the single longest mugging in recorded human history.

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