There are so, so many events today, including a book about teaching kids about sex, a mystery, scary stories, and the editor-in-chief of Bon Appetit magazine. Here are three that you might like:

First up at the Fremont Library is an event called, shockingly, "Poetry in Fremont." Local authors including David Wagoner, Janee J. Baugher and Deborah Woodard will read. Wagoner, in particular, is nifty. I did one of my earliest Constant Readers about him, if you're curious.

Allison Hoover Bartlett reads at Elliott Bay Book Company this afternoon. The Man Who Loved Books Too Much: The True Story of a Thief, a Detective, and a World of Literary Obsession is a book for book-lovers who secretly wish they were criminals.

And the big-deal event tonight is in Georgetown, at the Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery. Cartoonists Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan will be appearing. Cooper, who is a supremely disturbing painter, premieres his new collection, BENT, with a big party. He is joined by the supremely offensive Ryan, who is releasing a sequel to his book Prison Pit tonight.

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.
