Some of the most entertaining and hilarious stories revolve around OPP: other people's pain. Tonight, three writers and a singer-songwriter tell stories about injuries. Local author Ryan Boudinot—who wrote The Littlest Hitler, a book of short fiction about cruel children, terrorist clowns, and child abuse—is joined by essayist Sallie Tisdale and sociologist Richard Rodriguez on the Hugo House stage to share stories about whiplash and heartbreak and other accidental injustices. Laura Veirs will sing original songs on the theme, too. (Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave, 322-7030. 7:30 pm, $15–$25.)
