We have a collection of local Arab American authors reading at Seattle Public Library tonight, an uptight Seattleite in Greenwood, and three other events with two readers:

Hugo House is hosting Frances McCue and Mary Randlett tonight. The Car That Brought You Here Still Runs is a photographic travel book about McCue's love affair with the ghost of Richard Hugo.

It's the conclusion of Pilot Books' Small Press Book Fest tonight, and things conclude with a bang: Popular Stranger contributor Tao Lin will read twice at the tiny bookstore today. At noon, he hosts something called "Small Press Academy," which is a Q&A about Lin's job as a publisher of his own small press. At 6 pm, Tao Lin will make a second appearance at Pilot Books, put on his author hat* and do a reading. Both of these are the readings of the day.
