Reading Tonight: Kevin Sampsell

Tonight at Powell's, Kevin Sampsell reads from his new autobiography A Common Pornography—you can read a few excerpts from it right here.

Kevin's a Powell's employee (he runs the small press room), the publisher of Future Tense Books, and an occasional Mercury freelancer—he's also organized some of the most defiantly unstuffy readings I've been to in this town (Shock of the New, Booty Call). All told, the bar is pretty high for his own presentation tonight. I have a feeling he'll live up to it.

Also tonight, David Sax, author of Save the Deli, reads/talks pastrami at Kenny & Zuke's (the $15 admission gets you free food and beer). That's at 6 pm, RSVP through their website.

And if you're milling around the Central Library today at lunch time, drop by for a panel on local book blogs, featuring Reading Local's Gabe Barber, writer/blogger Laini Taylor, the Library's Emily-Jane Dawson, and yours truly. That's at noon.
