Two readings tonight.

Elliott Bay Book Company hosts Alex Cohen and Jennifer Barbee, the authors of the book Down and Derby: The Insider's Guide to Roller Derby. They will discuss roller derby, which is awesome. Maybe some of the Rat City Roller Girls will show up for this reading—they do tend to come out for all kinds of roller derby-related things. If they do come out, you should prepare to swoon.

And at Pilot Books, it's Sarah Mangold and Linda Russo. The local writers and editors will read new work and kick ass and take names. Mangold's Bird Dog magazine is pretty great stuff.

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.
