We have a book about a young lawyer in trouble, a book about driving a truck on icy roads, a book about a woman who is 40 and STILL SINGLE and much more tonight.

Alice G. Dewey reads at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. This is a discussion about the life and scholarly work of President Obama's mother, the late S. Ann Dunham. In particular, Dewey will discuss Dunham's Surviving the Odds: Village Industry in Indonesia.

And Frances McCue and Mary Randlett will read at University Book Store. The Car That Brought You Here Still Runs: Revisiting the Northwest Towns of Richard Hugo explores the Northwest through the eyes of the poet who is the inspiration for the Hugo House.

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.
