There's a ton of readings tonight, including mystery novels, horror collections, and much more.

Ivan Doig reads at Elliott Bay Book Company. Work Song is the newest novel from the wildly popular local author. Dan Epstein reads at Elliott Bay before Mr. Doig. Big Hair & Plastic Grass is subtitled A Funky Ride through Baseball & America in the '70s. Baseball players have never been and will never again be as cool as they were in the 70s.

Support The Stranger

And at Fantagraphics' Book Store, Dame Darcy reads from her collection of stories, Meat Cake, tonight. I have spoken highly of Dame Darcy before. This should be a fun, loopy summer evening event.

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.
