Tin House is hosting readings at Reed College's Cerf ampitheater all week, as part of their summer writer's workshop.

Last night, Aimee Bender, Walter Kirn, and Steve Almond read--I saw Steve Almond at Booty Call on Sunday, and while I'm guessing his Tin House reading didn't involve audience members chanting "anal sex! anal sex!" (or me, shouting "skullfucking! I mean, skull lovemaking!"), I assume it was good nonetheless?

Tonight's Tin House lineup is, I think, even better: Andrea Barrett, Nick Flynn, Charles D'Ambrosio. For $5. Outside. On a beautiful evening. (Starts at 8 pm.)
