This is a huge night for readings.

First—and this is highly Suggestible, so you'll be reading about it at least twice today—Christopher Ryan reads at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. Dan Savage and Charles Mudede both love Ryan's book Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Human Sexuality. You are not going to argue with either of these men.

But there are other readings, too. Robin D. G. Kelley reads up at Kane Hall. Kelley is the author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original, Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination, and Race Rebels: Culture Politics and the Black Working Class. In another room in Kane Hall, Connie Willis will read from All Clear, a sequel to Willis's recent time-travel novel, Blackout. Also in the U District: At University Book Store, David Wilma and Laura Tufts will read. Hope on the Hill is about the amazing life of the founder of Seattle Children’s Hospital.

And at Barnes & Noble University Village, it's time for Kevin Kelly. The author of What Technology Wants looks at technology as though it is a living thing that wants to evolve. It's a great, smart book about gadgets that denies the conventional wisdom. If you're not going to the Sex at Dawn reading, you should think about giving this one a shot.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
