University Book Store hosts readings every week for many different audiences, offering appearances by nationally prominent touring authors as well as writers from more niche genres (including mystery/crime, children’s books, young adult fiction, sports/adventure writing, and parenting). The really big headliners will often be pricier, ticketed, and hosted offsite, but check their website for what’s on offer this week and they’ll probably have at least a few exciting free readings. Also check out their large selection of new and used books, discussion groups, book clubs, and workshops. While you’re there, walk up and down University Way (also known as The Ave) and grab some Thai food or banh mi. (JULIA RABAN)
