We have a couple of touchy-feely self-helpy events tonight, and only one event that looks interesting.

Elliott Bay Book Company is hosting Shailja Patel tonight at 7. Patel is a poet and playwright. Migritude is a book that is based on a play written by Patel. It's made up of reportage and memoir and history, and it's all about women and migration "in the boot print of Empire."
