One event today, at Pilot Books. Reg Johanson and David Wolach give a verbal essay, or "talk," about a subject of their choosing. This is part of Pilot Books' Small Press Fest, and the third in a series of lectures titled "Big Pelt Talkie."

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.
