Elliott Bay Book Company hosts two readings tonight.

Dan Raley reads at 2 pm. The former Seattle P.I. editor, who had to flee to Atlanta in order to find a paying newspaper job, returns home with his new book Tideflats to Tomorrow: The History of Seattle's SoDo.

Later in the day, Elliott Bay hosts the creators of The Virgin Project and The Virgin Project 2, which are collections of comic strips about first experiences with sex. Every story is true; the author interviews people who are willing to talk about their deflowering and then he lays out the comic strips, which are then finished by someone who is not a tracer.

And in Oddfellows Hall, it's time for Naked Girls Reading. A collection of naked women—Lady Lydia McLane, Evilyn Sin Claire, Elsa Von Schmaltz, Jesse Belle-Jones, and Polly Wood—will read from instruction guides and how-to books. The subject matter will range from anarchist manifestos to striptease guides to cookbooks. I wrote about Naked Girls Reading a few months ago.

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.
