We have a Maine author I discussed yesterday, a history of the fur trade, a book that claims to help your fledgling writing career, and two events I will talk about right now.

There'll be a Suggests popping up about this soon, but I would like to remind you that Kate Lebo is reading pie-related stories at the Hugo House, along with an all-star cast including David Lasky, Jennifer Borges Foster, and Brian McGuigan.

And at Elliott Bay Book Company, Jonathan Tropper will read. This Is Where I Leave You is a comic novel about a man struggling with the death of his wife. A lot of novelists like this book. You should always pay attention to the novels that novelists like.

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.
