Around TownCalled by The Weekly Dig "Accessible, hilarious, and not too haughty," The Literary Roast is an irreverent variety show dedicated to knocking famous authors down a peg with burlesque, drag, words, and music!  Hosted by Wes Hazard, one of The Boston Globe's "Five Comedians to Watch," this edition has assembled a talent-studded crew guaranteed to bring you the very finest snark after dark.  Cecilia Tan (erotica author and founder of Circlet Press) will be performing an epic take-down of J.K. Rowling; Eileen Myles (author of Chelsea Girls) will be lampooning Dylan Thomas; and Hadron Gospel Hour, winner of The Parsec Award, will be staging a live radio drama with their own wry take on War of the Worlds.  Add in the sultry vocal stylings of 3rian King, drag by Complete Destruction, and burlesque by Allix Mortis, Johnny Blazes, and more, and you have an evening that redefines "bookish"!  At Oberon in Harvard Square on Thursday, December 18 at 8pm.  Get your tickets here!

The Trustees of the Brookline Public Library present a night of mystery, suspense and award-winning authors with Homicide for the Holidays!  On Wednesday, December 10th at 7pm a blockbuster panel of mystery writers will convene to send some chills up your spine.  Come meet Hank Phillippi Ryan, Hallie Ephron, Joseph Finder and Julia Spencer-Fleming!  Get your book from the Library, or pre-order a discounted copy from us here at Brookline Booksmith.  Signed books make great holiday presents!
One more item from the Library: Are you a gamer?  Take a moment to complete this short, anonymous survey about the possibility of borrowing video games from the library!
