We have a bunch of readings today, including a book about a murderous pregnant elephant and a weird bestselling Christian book about some guy who found God in a shack or something. If you want to read about those, you should go visit the readings calendar.

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.
