We have a couple of mysteries today, and then two interesting-looking readings.

Vancouver poet Clint Burnham reads at Pilot Books tonight. Maybe you should stop over during your Block Party festivities.

And Western Bridge is hosting the readings launch for Anna Odessa Linzer's novel, A River Story. Linzer and Elizabeth Huddle will do a staged reading from the book inside an installation by Oscar Tuazon and Eli Hansen. This could be interesting, and there will be live music by The Toy Boats, who are a band that makes music using toy instruments.

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.
