Sometimes it gets like this; there’s so much going on in the literary world in Seattle, it’s hard to decide where to turn. Here are some of your options tonight:
- At 7 p.m. at Town Hall, author Isabel Allende discusses her new novel “Maya’s Notebook.” Read the Seattle Times review here.
- At 7 p.m. at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, Philippe Petit, the high-wire artist who was the subject of the movie “Man on Wire,” discusses his new book “Why Knot? How to Tie More Than Sixty Ingenious, Useful, Beautiful, Lifesaving, and Secure Knots.” A logical subject for Petit!
- At 7 p.m. at the downtown branch of the Seattle Public Library, Granta Magazine editor John Freeman and Nadifa Mohamed and Ross Raisin, two writers featured in the magazine’s “Best Young British Novelists” issue, will discuss lit, Brits, and related matters.
At 7 p.m. at Richard Hugo House, I’ll be on a panel with Stranger Book editor Paul Constant and Marilyn Dahl of the newsletter Shelf Awareness, talking about book reviews in the digital age.
I know which one I have to go to. Good luck making up your mind!
