The fall literary season is heating up, and events next Monday and Tuesday offer face time, in person and online, with people who love to talk about books:

*At 7 p.m. Monday at Seattle Public Library’s downtown branch, two of Seattle’s finest authors – David Laskin, author of “The Family,” and Daniel James Brown, author of “The Boys in the Boat,” will talk about the craft of narrative nonfiction, in conversation with Seattle Times book editor Mary Ann Gwinn. This event is free – for more information go to spl.org or call 206-386-4636.

*At noon Tuesday Seattle Times books editor Mary Ann Gwinn and David Wright, reader services librarian for the Seattle Public Library, will do a live chat with readers on seattletimes.com.  I can answer questions about upcoming fall books (or any books, for that matter). Wright’s specialty:  if you tell him the last book you read and enjoyed, he can recommend the NEXT book you’re going to want to read.

 

If you have a question you’d like to submit before hand, e-mail Mary Ann at mgwinn@seattletimes.com. Or just join in at noon Tuesday on seattletimes.com.
