PELECANOS ALERT



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.

  1. His new book, "The Way Home," is tremendous.

  2. I was thinking of quitting my job so I could re-read all of his books and catch up on the several I have missed!
