THIS Thursday George Pelecanos is having a reading at Busboys and Poets, one of my favorite hang outs down on 14th near U Street. It's a bar, a book store, a coffee house- a place dear to my heart because there are so many choices. (Where else does the host ask if you'd like a table or a couch?)
And I am not sure that there is another writer out there that captures true local Washington like DC's own George Pelecanos. He may be famous for his crime novels, but his fiction has a dead ring of truth.
6:30 p.m. Free.
