Joshua Braff reads at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. Braff, who is the brother of Zach Braff, will read from Peep Show, a debut novel about a family in the 1970s.

Third Place Books hosts Jeanne Matthews tonight. Bones of Contention is a mystery with "mythological overtones [and] crocodiles." SPOILER WARNING: If the victim dies of teeth marks, the crocodiles did it. If the victim dies of lightning, it was probably the gods who did it.
