Nature Babies: Natural Knits and Organic Crafts for Moms, Babies, and a Better World
What's cuter than a smiling little wrinkled baby? A smiling little wrinkled baby wearing a hoodie or a tiny little scarf that somebody knitted just for her! I'm serious. What? Powell's Books for Home and Garden, 3747 SE Hawthorne, 235-3802, 1 pm, free


Washed Up: The Curious Journeys of Flotsam and JetsAm
Skye Moody goes deep into the oceanic shoreline and everything that washes up there (from Rolexes to kilos of heroin), and turns an amused eye to the subculture of hardcore beachcombing metal detector fanatics. Powell's Books on Hawthorne, 3723 SE Hawthorne, 238-1668, 7:30 pm, free


Long Journey: Contemporary Northwest Poets
More than 80 regional poets are collected in the pages of Long Journey; editor David Biespiel will be joined by poets Carlos Reyes, Sandra Stone, and others at tonight's reading. Powell's City of Books, 1005 W Burnside, 228-4651, 7:30 pm, free


Geek Logik
This one's kind of adorable: a book "for brainiacs lacking basic social skills" that offers advice on everything from women to wardrobe. It's a pity that the National Association of Hooligans are hosting their annual Drink-n-Bash party next door at the same time. Powell's Technical books, 33 NW Park Ave, 228-3906, 7 pm, free
