Melanie Thernstrom reads at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. Thernstrom's new book about chronic pain is titled The Pain Chronicles: Cures, Myths, Mysteries, Prayers, Diaries, Brain Scans, Healing and the Science of Suffering. As any monkey can tell you, pain is fascinating, and we don't really know that much about it. Hopefully Thernstrom can reveal something new tonight.
The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
