At Elliott Bay Book Company, Donald P. Ryan, Ph.D will read. Ryan,who press materials refer to as an "eminent archaeologist," reads from Beneath the Sands of Egypt: Adventures of an Unconventional Archeologist.
Town Hall hosts Arthur Brooks, who will read from his new book The Battle: How the Fight Between Free Enterprise and Big Government Will Shape America’s Future. I bet you twenty bucks that there will be teabaggers at this reading.
And Larry Doyle reads at University Book Store. Go Mutants is a novel about a mutant who doesn't fit in. Doyle wrote I Love You, Beth Cooper, which is better than the movie adaptation of the same name. I started Go Mutants, and it looks like an entertaining sci-fi romp of a book that imagines what would happen if every 50s sci-fi film ever written was real. This is the reading of the night.
