We have a story of a boy with Asperger's syndrome who is convicted of murder, a free pizza party with the author of a young adult zombie book, and more tonight.

As part of Small Press Fest, Tenney Nathanson will read at Pilot Books. Nathanson is a Tuscon poet who has published lots of books with good titles: Night Sky With Stars in My Mouth, You Who Peruse Me, The Book of Death.

Hugo House is hosting James Greer and Mark Gluth tonight. Greer, who is a "writer and one-time bassist for the band Guided by Voices" reads from his novel about a "robbery gone wrong." Gluth is the author of a promising-looking novella.

Support The Stranger

And Hugo House is also hosting an event at Kane Hall tonight. Brendan wrote a Suggest for Laws of Attraction that will be popping up soon, but trust me when I say that Phillip Lopate is the shit when it comes to personal essays.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here. And if you're planning on staying in and you're looking for personalized book recommendations, feel free to tell me the books you like and ask me what to read next over at Questionland.
